Your wish is RIM CEO Thorsten Heins’s command. After confirming a 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook would hit the market, it looks as though the device will finally be out as early as next Tuesday, July 31. How much? $550 for the 32GB version.
According to a document purporting to include pre-release details, the device will also come equipped with a 7-inch display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 5-megapixel rear camera (3-megapixel front), a 4,800 mAh battery and 1GB RAM. Also: Did I mention it’ll reportedly retail for $550? Boy, it’ll sure take some convincing to entice potential Nexus 7 owners.
The only attached carrier at the moment is Bell, but that’s likely to change. There’s no mention of NFC, which has been rumored since the 4G-model was outed earlier this year, and no other storage variants to be seen. Because Mobile Syrup’s document is pre-release, information could potentially change before the tablet is released, but this looks to be about everything folks need to make a decision.
My only question is: Will this receive BlackBerry 10?
