The new BlackBerry 10 operating system is looking very promising, as it has several interesting features. If you’ve already got a BlackBerry PlayBook collecting dust on the shelves then this is good news for you since the device is going to be getting an update to the latest operating system, BlackBerry 10.
BlackBerry is shedding the name RIM and along with this news CEO Thorsten Heins announced that the Playbook would not be forgotten and would be getting a refresh. It remains to be seen how the new operating system will work on the 1.0 GHz dual-core CPU that “only” has1 GB RAM. The Playbook was already a strong multitasking machine and the TI processor was very competitive when it hit the street.
The BlackBerry PlayBook is easy to come by and it’s for sale at a very affordable price, you can pick one up on Amazon for $170 for the 32GB version. I’d wait an see how the operating system handles before you run to grab one, but if I were you I’d start asking around to see who’s got one they aren’t using.
