RIM to show Blackberry PlayBook OS 2.0 at CES 2012

Research-in-Motion has been sending invites for a press conference at CES 2012 next week that will be used for showing off the BlackBerry PlayBook OS version 2.0.

This is good news for the company which has found itself amidst low sales, judicial problems, strong competition and faltering financial results.

The new operating system was actually expected in February 2012 so the early release may be a sign that the company is getting out of the hot water and that all the problems with the new OS have been resolved and everything works as expected.

A highly anticipated feature of the new BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 is an Android emulator which enables the Playbook to run Android applications without the need to run Android first. Just this fact is likely to make the PlayBook more appealing on the market after all those price cuts it (and RIM) suffered.
