Research In Motion, the manufacturers of BlackBerry range of smartphones, earlier this year had spilled the beans about the launch of the 4G version PlayBook. Now a website, Mobilesyrup, has claimed that the 4G version of the BlackBerry PlayBook is set to be launched on 31st of this month for around $549.95 or Rs 32,000 approximately. The website has claimed this quoting an internal document of a Canadian mobile service provider – Bell.
Apart from being a fully cellular network capable device sans the calling functionality, the 4G version of the BlackBerry PlayBook will feature a dual core 1.5 GHz processor and a faster graphic processor as well. There will be no change in the features and the display will still be the same 7 inch capacitive one with a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution.
The device will feature the same 5 megapixel rear camera and a 3 megapixel front camera. Only this time the rear camera will feature full HD (1080p) video recording as well. Following the launch, the new PlayBook is expected to be available in multiple variants starting with a 32 GB of onboard storage and going up to 64 GB.
Along with that the 4G version Playbook will be based on LTE (Long Term Evolution) technology, offering blistering fast speeds and connectivity.
For Indian users, the PlayBook might be made available in the months of August-September but a final word regarding the same is expected from BlackBerry India after the launch of the tablet only.
