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.

Of course, the 4G tablet that Sprint’s readying could also be Windows 7-based, of even WebOS-based. We probably won’t know for sure until next year.

    Strange that you create a definitive headline, then say you really have no idea about the OS at the bottom of your article. Do you know something or not? Are you just fishing for clicks?

    How exactly is “might” related to “definitive”?
