BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 may finally get A2DP Bluetooth audio

updated 03:05 pm EST, Fri December 16, 2011

Streaming audio expected with update in February

BlackBerry PlayBook owners may soon be getting A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) audio. CrackBerry has posted a screenshot of the latest version BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 developer beta, which shows off support for the Bluetooth stereo capability. With it, PlayBook owners can stream two-channel stereo from their tablets to headphones, car stereos, speakers, or other Bluetooth-equipped hardware.

Most PlayBook owners will have to wait until the PlayBook 2.0 OS is officially released in February before they can leverage A2DP. RIM had initially planned to make the update available in late October or early November, but decided to delay it until it "fully met the expectations" of both developers and users. Until then, RIM has been shipping beta versions to developers and some enterprise buyers.
