In what appears to be an offering after the horse has bolted, Research In Motion has delivered an update OS for their Blackberry Playbook which retailers are discounting due to a lack of demand.The upgrade comes almost a year after the tablet was released.

The free Playbook 2.0 upgrade includes a new built-in email function along with new web browsing and multimedia functionality.

The upgrade was promised within 60 days of the device’s release back in April 2011.

This upgrade for the Playbook – RIM’s first foray into the tablet market – also sees built-in calendar and contacts functions added, as well as tighter integration with social networks such as Twitter and LinkedIn.

David Smith, RIM’s senior vice-president of mobile computing, said: “Building on the Blackberry Playbook tablet’s proven web browsing, multimedia and multitasking strengths, the new Blackberry Playbook OS 2.0 introduces a range of new communications and productivity enhancements as well as expanded app and content support.”

Another new feature, Blackberry Bridge, allows users to control the tablet remotely using a Blackberry smartphone.

However, the popular instant-messaging service BlackBerry Messenger – known colloquially as BBM – is absent from the upgrade the BBC said.
