Sprint 4G tablet to be launched next year, might not run Android, might be RIM’s PlayBook
Sprint is offering 4G (WiMax) services for quite a while now, and yet its first tablet – the Samsung Galaxy Tab – is limited to using 3G.
However, a 4G tablet will be launched by Sprint soon.
According to Forbes, Sprint’s President of Business Markets recently said that their first tablet to support 4G will be available sometime in 2011.
The tablet’s manufacturer has not been unveiled, but Sprint mentioned that it “will soon sell tablets with other operating systems” – other than Android, of course. Since RIM hinted at a 4G BlackBerry PlayBook earlier this month, Sprint’s upcoming tablet might be a RIM one.
