PlayBook Updates?

Early May saw RIM talking about regular updates in the region of every two weeks for the PB. A month later and there has not been an update since 1.0.3.1868 .... are there any rumors of when updates will be available and in particular the Android App Player?

Re: PlayBook Updates?

I'm sure that when there is any news about updates, people will post here.

 

Unfortunately for us, RIM like to hold their cards so close to their collective chests that a bypass operation would involve several games of Texas Holdem.

 

As for the 2 week release cycle, the quote actually stated that they could release updates every 2 weeks if they needed to. I think that was more to show how versatile their infrastructure is rather that a commitment to updates.

 

All other speculation is just that - speculation.

 

HOWEVER, my own personal opinion is that they would push out an update before the UK / European releases for more favourable reviews. It would be a wasted opportunity not to.

Yep, people seem to ignore the qualifier in the same sentence of the RIM VP, who said, "If needed...", but, of course, he didn't comment who would determine the "need". Smiley Wink
