96.5% of BlackBerry PlayBook owners are using the tablet's latest OS build

96.5% of BlackBerry PlayBook owners are using the tablet's latest OS build
Statistics from the popular BlackBerry PlayBook game Pixelated reveal that an amazing 96.5% of PlayBook users are running the latest BlackBerry PlayBook OS v2.1. To put that in perspective, only 1.2% of Android users are running Android 4.2% on their device and 47.4% are using Gingerbread. And while there are many more different Android models and variants compared to the BlackBerry PlayBook, 96.5% is still an amazing number.

Since launching the tablet, BlackBerry has sold 1,350,000 units which includes 500,000 units sold in the fourth quarter. The latest major update to the tablet took place in October when BlackBerry PlayBook OS v2.1 was pushed out. The update brought increased Android app support, an update to BlackBerry Bridge and enhancements to Email and PIM.

96.5% adoption is something that BlackBerry PlayBook owners should be applauded for as it means that they are keeping a close eye on what is happening with their tablet. 89% had updated to PlayBook OS V2.1 in the first 24 hours which is incredible. And only 4 out of every 1,000 users of the BlackBerry Tablet are using a BlackBerry PlayBook OS version lower than version 2.0.
