Hey BB fanatics, want a new tablet? There’s a new 4G BlackBerry PlayBook which goes on sale next week. Though it’s kinda make or break for Research In Motion (RIM) catching up with the tablet market while it’s been a year since it introduced its first tablet. But it’s good to note that the updated 7-inch PlayBook now includes a 4G connectivity and a-32GB storage.
One good thing about this updated version, if you guys have no 4G LTE connectivity in your area, the 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook tablet can automatically adjust to connect on a HSPA+ network. Looking at its features, the tablet still has a 7-inch 1024-pixel by 600-pixel resolution display, dual HD video cameras, HDMI capability, and stereo speakers. The processor is increased to 1.5GHz from 1GHz in the Wi-Fi-only model. And there’s still 1GB of RAM on board, however, there’s only one storage option, 32GB.
Along with this new tablet is the anticipated BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0. And as expected, all the features are gonna be available including email, calendar, contacts, and video chat. But do you think that by adding 4G connectivity to the PlayBook would have a great impact for this tablet and for RIM to catch up?
Meanwhile, Canadians are lucky to be the first in line to get their hands on the new PlayBook starting August 9. And in the coming months, it is expected to reach the U.S., Europe, and the rest of the world, though RIM still has to reveal how much the new PlayBook would cost but a price tag of $549.95 is being rumoured.
