BlackBerry PlayBook 4G LTE Tablet debuts; Release Date August 9th
After a long wait of rumors and leaks, RIM has finally launched most anticipated 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook. The 7 inch PlayBook with high-speed wireless data connectivity will be released in Canada first, while US, Europe, South Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean in the coming months.
The new BlackBerry PlayBook with 4G LTE connectivity is running on the same Playbook OS. The tablet is powered by a new dual-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz (previously 1GHz) and seems initially only one version of the tablet will be available, packing 32GB of storage.
The 4G LTE PlayBook will use Micro SIM cards for LTE connectivity, but functionally the new PlayBook 4G is identical to the current version. The BlackBerry PlayBook 4G release date for Canada is August 9th and will be available via Bell, Rogers and TELUS. Unfortunately, pricing for the new 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook is yet to be revealed, but expected to be revealed, getting closer to the release date.
