BlackBerry PlayBook Gets Software Update For Flash 10.3 And AIR 2.7
But either way, RIM's shedding some of that bad news with a bit of positivity here. The company's first major BlackBerry Tablet OS has been released, bringing the OS up to v1.0.6. That update delivers support for Adobe's Flash 10.3 player as well as AIR 2.7. A number of new apps will be able to run on this unit thanks to the latter, and of course, Flash performance is expected to improve with Flash 10.3.
Today’s update also incorporates the Adobe Flash Player updates as noted in Adobe Security Bulletins APSB11-12 and APSB11-18, which addresses issues that can potentially affect any PC, tablet or other device with an operating system that supports Flash. This free update can be downloaded over-the-air from your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. Existing users will automatically receive a software update notification on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet status ribbon, or they can check for the software update at any time in the settings menu under Software Updates. If you buy a PlayBook this week, however, it'll be updated as part of the setup process.
