Upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook OS update will bring tweaks and bug fixes

 

BlackBerry PlayBook

While it's not the OS 2.0 we'd all like to see, the word on the street is that an upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet OS update is on the way. The update will bring nothing new in terms of features, but it will include a few minor tweaks and fixes that have been bugging some users. As posted in the BlackBerry Beta Zone forums: 

I just wanted to let you know that we're working on an interim Tablet OS software update to precede the 2.0 release in February. It won't have any new features (we're still perfecting those!), but a good percentage of the content came from this community.

Here is a list of some of the included changes (should make some of you happy):

  • Daylight Savings Time: updated some time zones
  • Updated Bluetooth and Wi-Fi drivers improving co-existence and connectivity
  • BlackBerry App World account payments reliability improvements
  • Improvements to VPN connection reliability
  • Addressed some scenarios where BlackBerry Desktop Software would not restore applications to the PlayBook

You'll see this update within a few weeks. I know some of you wanted more in the interim, but the focus is going into making things solid for 2.0. For what impact this community did have on this update, I thank you!

I can update this thread when it becomes available. In the mean time, feel free to share your thoughts!

We'll still have to hold out until at least February for OS 2.0, but it's always nice to see an update regardless. This one will be a welcome update for PlayBook users and hopefully RIM will continue to pump out the fixes until OS 2.0 hits.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

"Our goal is to deliver fantastic cross-platform apps that support the variety of email services people use today and help them accomplish more." Recode first reportedthat Microsoft would make its latest acquisition official today; the company is said to be paying over $200 million for Acompli.
