RIM plans to show off BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 at CES, MWC will see BlackBerry OS 10
Can you imagine that it has been close to a year now since we first got the opportunity to check out RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook back at last year’s CES show? Yeah, we know, time surely flies! Since then, we’ve been teased with the notion of seeing BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 – bringing along some much-needed and fresh features to the QNX based tablet.

Surprisingly, RIM sent out invitations to an event they’re holding at CES to show off PlayBook OS 2.0. No, it doesn’t seem like it’s going to be locked behind glass or something else, but rather, it seems as though they'll have units on hand ready for attendees to check it out in full form. Of course, after hearing that it was being delayed until February, CES would be the obvious event to showcase the refined functionality of the updated platform.

Needless to say, it’s going to revitalize the tablet tremendously, especially when it’s missing certain aspects that we commonly expect to find on tablets – like a native email application. Interestingly enough, RIM’s other platform, BlackBerry OS 10, will more than likely make its debut in February at Mobile World Congress.

Obviously, this is a nice one-two punch for RIM, but more importantly, we wonder how interested people are going to be considering the lengthy wait time.

well that's bad, considering the healthier the competition is the better. A stronger blackberry means a stronger android, iphone, etc.
