BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 update to roll out on February 17th?


The BlackBerry PlayBook is coming up on its first birthday. In that time, its parent (company) RIM has been through a lot. Between hiring a new CEO and the lawsuits and delays that have gone on with RIM, I'm surprised that the company is still around. It's seriously had some issues through the past year, but I'm hoping that the new management can completely turn that around. 

Speaking of turning things around, remember that PlayBook OS 2.0 update that was delayed? Well, if you own a PlayBook, I've got some good news for you: rumor has it that the update will start to roll out on February 17th. 

Of course, all of the rumored dates have been in February anyway, but since the 17th is mid-month, I'd place my money there. That way, you'll be surprised if it's sooner, but not too disappointed if it's later; it would only be an 11 day wait, anyway. 

I really hope it's the former situation. It would be a great way for Thorsten Heins to regain the confidence of consumers and potential RIM customers. If it's the latter, then he'll have one more chance to redeem both himself and the company: BlackBerry 10.
