4G BlackBerry PlayBook officially announced, hits the streets on August 9 in Canada
After more than a year of anticipation, the 4G LTE capable version of the BlackBerry PlayBook has been officially introduced by RIM today. As expected because of the latest rumor on the matter, the 4G PlayBook will have a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor. The Wi-Fi-only version has to do with a 1 GHz dual-core unit.
The 4G PlayBook will only be available with 32 GB of built-in storage space. All the other specs remain unchanged compared to the Wi-Fi-only tablet. So, the new PlayBook will still come with a 7-inch 1024×600 touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera with 1080p Full HD video recording, a 3 MP front-facing camera, GPS, micro USB, and micro HDMI.
The 4G PlayBook will be out in Canada first, on August 9. It will be offered over there by Bell, Rogers, and Telus. In “the coming months”, it will make its way to the US, Europe, South Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean.
