Research In Motion (RIM) had showcased its BlackBerry Tablet OS 2.0 last week at the Consumer Electronics Show 2012 in Las Vegas, USA.
The BlackBerry Tablet OS 18.104.22.16849 version brings a fresh user interface that allows docking icons just like in the BlackBerry OS 7 and also create pages that can be scrolled from right to left. By default, the OS comes with ‘Documents To Go’ package that allows editing word documents, and spreadsheets.
The BlackBerry Bridge continues to work perfectly and the mobile web browser plays Flash video smoothly.
Follow the below guide to get the Tablet OS 22.214.171.12449 Beta on your PlayBook tablet. Do note that applying BlackBerry tablet OS 2.0 will wipe any and every existing data of your PlayBook tab.
Go to PlayBook for Beta access page, from your PlayBook tablet
On PlayBook, press on the Gear icon on top right corner of the screen. Then tap on “About” menu on the left column and choose “Hardware” from the drop down menu list located next to the text – View Information about your tablet. That will show your PlayBook tablet PIN.
Feed in your Tablet’s PIN, the email address linked to your BlackBerry ID and finally check the box to agree with the terms and conditions.
On the PlayBook tablet, go to the Software Updates menu and tap on ‘Check for Updates’ button. Over here, the tablet is expected to be connected with a good WiFi connection.
At this point, the BlackBerry Tablet OS 126.96.36.19949 will show and start downloading. Do note that the update download process might be slow so leave the PlayBook for couple of hours. In case you miss out downloading the update despite of several tries, then wait for 24 hours and follow the aforementioned steps again to download the BlackBerry Tablet OS 2.0 for your tablet.
