4G LTE BlackBerry Playbook to be released by RIM in Canada


Tablets are abound in the tech market place nowadays. Ever since Apple launched their first iteration of the iPad, companies have started and raised to delve into the business.

Even fledgling companies are trying to develop their own in their bid to bounce back and reclaim lost glory.

Such is Research In Motion’s idea. Seeing a major drop in their smartphone business, RIM entered the tablet arena with their BlackBerry Playbook. The first Playbook has not faired well in the tech tablet market, compared to the iPad.

Now, RIM tests the 4G LTE waters as they launch their latest 4G LTE BlackBerry Playbook this month. First announced at the Mobile World Congress a year ago, the 4G LTE BlackBerry Playbook tablet will be released on July 31. Hints and rumors have circulated over the Web regarding this device. Leaked images have been released but no official announcement has been made public.

According to mobilesyrup.com, they have been notified that the 4G LTE BlackBerry Playbook will be released via Bell. But they say that other Canadian telcos are set to carry the tablet. The 4G LTE BlackBerry Playbook has a 1024 x 600 screen resolution with a 1.5 GHz processor. It also comes with a 1 GB of RAM and a 5 MP rear facing camera.

It is set to retail at $549.95.
