The BlackBerry Playbook Video Chat is sweet, and the sugar will keep coming “If we need to, we’ll be cranking new capabilities for users every two weeks,” said RIM vice president of software Alan Panezic. In the middle of the night RIM has given us a major system software update to the PlayBook. Version 1.0.3 adds Video Chat, BlackBerry Messenger (via Bridge), Docs Editing (via Bridge), and home screen browser bookmarks. Once system 1.0.3 is installed, users will also be able to access and download the new Facebook application for PlayBook.

This new system software comes just weeks after the last update, 1.0.1710, which was sent to the PlayBook just after launching. As it turns out, basically PlayBook owners need to get used to the ‘plays changing’ quite often.The guys at CrackBerrydotcom has a demo for us to enjoy:

The update can be downloaded without tethering to a computer. It comes in at 290 MB. The update process takes perhaps 15 minutes from start to finish. The video chatting application, which only works over Wi-Fi, lets two people open up a voice and video call between two PlayBooks. More to come about the BlackBerry Playbook this week, stay tuned.
