Just last week, RIM announced BBX, the next iteration of the Canadian manufacturer's mobile operating system for both its line of popular BlackBerry smartphones and the PlayBook. Of course, things never seem to go right for RIM. It has just announced that the PlayBook won't be getting the 2.0 update until February of next year.
David Smith, the Senior Vice President for the PlayBook, cited that the delay is due to RIM wanting to make sure it "fully met the expectations" for its customers. No major software revision is without its beta testing; users in the enterprise sector will be able to test BBX/2.0 through the company's Early Adopter Program, mainly to make sure that the updated software (which includes email capabilities, finally!) is compatible with their servers and services.
Still, false claims from RIM are happening more and more as time progresses. Eventually, I'm sure that they will tell a big enough lie to lose a majority of the few people still using its products.
There are some serious issues going on in RIM's HQ. I hope, for the sake of the company, that its workers can get those issues resolved.[Electronista]
