Research in Motion has confirmed that their Playbook Tablet PC would get the Blackberry 10 software update which it is released later this year.
Blackberry 10 would power their next generation smartphone models. Playbook is currently powered with its own customized OS which is much different from the Blackberry OS.
The company said:
We’ve said publicly a number of times that our first BB10 handset will be available towards the end of 2012, and that’s still firmly the case. At some point after the launch we’ll bring BB10 to our PlayBooks, yes.
