BlackBerry PlayBook OS v1.0.7.2942 Now Available – Allows Differential Updates


As we suspected RIM has rolled out a new OS for the BlackBerry PlayBook today. This update to v1.0.7.2942 is not going to be really noticeable other than faster pairing and bridge use. On the other hand it adds a key feature under the hood. RIM can now perform differential updates to allow them to update only parts of the OS instead of the whole thing. That way we have smaller downloads and faster updates.


The main noticeable features are:

  • Improved Wi-Fi® connectivity to WEP networks
  • Faster pairing between a BlackBerry smartphone and BlackBerry PlayBook tablet via the BlackBerry® Bridge™ app, and faster attachment opening via BlackBerry Bridge.

Otherwise everything else is mostly bug fixes. RIM clearly states that this update lays the groundwork for future updates by saying “differential updates feature will also come in handy as we prepare for more feature-packed BlackBerry Tablet OS updates later this year. =D”
