BlackBerry PlayBook 4G spotted, seems ready for launch

BlackBerry PlayBook 4G

The screenshots of the BlackBerry PlayBook 4G has been spotted after a number of appearances earlier. It is reported that RIM has started pushing these tablets to corporate partners and distributing channels. RIM CEO, Thorsten Heins told Crackberry that we’ll soon see the BlackBerry PlayBook 4G on sale in the market.

The screenshots were surfaced on N4BB and BlackBerry-FR. The new PlayBook, unlike the current one will be 3G and 4G enabled in addition to WiFi. The tablet will have a SIM-tray that will fit a micro-SIM card in it to enable mobile network connectivity. The tablet is reported to work a little faster as it will be powered by a new 1.5GHz processor and running PlayBook OS 2.0.1.354 as reported by N4BB.

The bad thing is that the specific tablet that N4BB checked out was missing the BlackBerry Messenger in it, for this a user will have to bridge his BlackBerry. There is no word on availability and pricing but we expect that BlackBerry will set a decent price for their PlayBook 4G to compete with the dominant tablets available at affordable costs in market.

    Waiting for the launch. I will definitely buy one for all my data requirements and keep a (Nokia) phone for voice calls & sms. BB Messenger is no longer that important as it has lost it’s security value what with the Government being able to access it
