BlackBerry PlayBook 4G LTE Soon to Offer in Early April
In last year’s CES, Research in Motion (RIM) announced that it has plans to release a Blackberry 4G Playbook tablet during the year’s second half. However, it has been a year, and no 4G tablets have been sold.
The company, however, appears to be working to rectify that as a new Blackberry PlayBook 4G LTE will be available early in the month of April 2012.
The device is expected to have support for high speed connections via LTE and HSPA+. Carriers such as AT&T and Verizon in the United States, which have 4G LTE networks are expected to offer the new tablet.
Sprint, which will also have a 4G LTE network come mid 2012, might also eventually carry this device. Meanwhile, in Canada, where RIM is based, the new Playbook might be available at Bell, Rogers, and TELUS.
The pricing and specifications for the new tablet are currently unknown, but they are expected to be competitive given the growing tablet market. Moreover, RIM seems to be on a roll with new developments and innovations.
The company has just recently brought out the new BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 which has native email, improved contacts and calendar, and even a capability to run Android apps.
There is a chance, however, that RIM will preview the device in this year’s Mobile World Congress.
