Update: According to SlashGear, the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 operating system will most likely be launched and demo-ed at MWC on the 29th this year.

BGR has gotten more confirmation with regards to the release date for BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 and the day is set for the 21st of February. This is right on track with what RIM revealed during Devcon Asia in Singapore last year, with a roadmap for the update pointing to somewhere in this month for its slated launch date.

The PlayBook OS 2.0 will bring many updates that users found lacking in the device, including native email, calendar, and contacts apps. Bridge 2.0 will also bring a few new features, including a remote control feature. Unfortunately, BBM will still not be present from this update.

At this stage, it is still unclear whether the PlayBook will eventually adopt the BlackBerry 10 OS after the arrival of its OS 2.0.
