Even after the second version of the QNX (operating system of PlayBook) was released, which brought in a native email app, BBM remained absent and needed a BlackBerry phone connected via BlackBerry Bridge in order for it to run on the tablet. BlackBerry is going to unveil its latest operating system on January 30 and BlackBerry PlayBook could be up for an upgrade, which could include the BBM app. However, there are doubts as well, since the tablet did not bring much success to BlackBerry in terms of sales and therefore, RIM is not expected to make much effort on this tablet.
