Update the software
on your tablet

Updating to the latest BlackBerry® PlayBook™ OS is free and easy, and happens over the air.

Best of BlackBerry comes built in


Built-in messages lets you quickly and easily manage both your email and social network messages with a unified inbox. And creating, editing and formatting messages is super intuitive with new features like inline editing and the ability to use bold, underlining and italics.


With the newsreel feature and a People View of your day included in the built-in calendar, you’re always equipped with up to the minute information about the people and companies you’re meeting with.


The built-in contacts app is much more than an address book. It acts as a social hub, gathering information from networks like Facebook®, Twitter® and LinkedIn® to create a complete profile of your contacts.

Video Chat

Nothing beats face-to-face interaction, and two HD video cameras plus stereo speakers let you enjoy video chats between PlayBook tablets. Plus, with real multitasking, you can go ahead and check your email while chatting with one of your contacts.
