    Blackberry PlayBook operating software update delayed

    The maker of the Blackberry PlayBook has delayed an update to the tablet computer's operating system until next year.

    Research In Motion said it expects to deliver the software in February. It had been due this month.

    RIM has admitted that sales of the device are lower than it anticipated. It acknowledged customers want native email, calendar and contacts applications.

    The update aims to add the features.

    A company blog described the decision as "difficult", but promised the revision will allow the firm's phones and PlayBooks "to work together even better".

    RIM's shares closed down 7.5% on the news.
