RIM released the latest update BlackBerry PlayBook tablet -- BlackBerry Tablet OS v1.0.7.2942 introduces a small but very important new feature: "differential updates".

Note: "BlackBerry PlayBook tablet users must already have BlackBerry Tablet OS v1.0.7.2670 installed to experience differential updates. Going forward, all BlackBerry PlayBook tablets running v1.0.7.2942 or higher will experience differential updates," the company added.

  • 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.

The comapny said that the BlackBerry Tablet OS v1.0.7.2942 can be downloaded over-the-air from your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.

"Users who purchase and activate a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet on or after Wednesday, August 24th, 2011 will be automatically updated to v1.0.7.2942 as part of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet setup process.

Existing BlackBerry PlayBook tablet users will be presented with 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," noted BalckBerry.
