BlackBerry’s PlayBook tablet will be launched in India in June, sources in the company told ‘The Mobile Indian’.
The seven inch tablet that was earlier expected to be launched in the country in May has been postponed due to an unexpected delay in shipments.
PlayBook has a capacitive multi touch input, dual core 1 GHz processor along with dedicated graphics and 1GB of RAM with the option of 16, 32 or 64 GB of onboard storage. There is no expandable-memory slot in this device.
There is only a Wifi version of the PlayBook, which means a GSM version is not even in the making, but PlayBook has the functionality to be tethered to any existing BlackBerry smartphone for email and other BlackBerry functionality.
The company has not disclosed any information on the tablet’s price, but looking at global trends the device is expected to launch with a price tag of Rs 30,000.
However, considering recent launches and announcements about other tablets in India, Research In Motion might just have a completely different plan regarding its tablet’s price.
