Research In Motion’s (RIM) vice president of product management, Rob Orr, has revealed that the company is set to deliver an update to the BlackBerry 10 OS to the owners of the PlayBook tablet PC soon, which is currently running on PlayBook OS 2.0.
The new Blackberry 10 OS is based on the same QNX platform which is currently used by the Playbook OS.
Rob stated following:
“We’ve said publicly a number of times that our first BB10 handset will be available towards the end of 2012, and that’s still firmly the case,” “At some point after the launch we’ll bring BB10 to our PlayBooks, yes”
No other details about the update were given. We suspect the new BlackBerry 10 smartphone will debut in same time frame as the new OS hits the tablet. Though, we’ll keep you guys updated.
