Research In Motion (RIM) has announced the launch of its BlackBerry PlayBook (4G/LTE) tablet for the international markets. The 4G/LTE version of the BlackBerry PlayBook will be first made available in Canada on August 9 and later will be launched in other countries.
Apart from being a fully cellular network capable device that does not have the calling functionality, the 4G/LTE version of the BlackBerry PlayBook features a dual core 1.5 GHz processor for improved overall performance. It has almost same features as the older PlayBook such as the same 7 inch capacitive display with 1024 x 600 pixel resolution.
Like the older version, the PlayBook 4G tablet has a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 3 megapixel front camera. Only this time the rear camera features full HD 1080p video recording capability. The new PlayBook is only available in one variant with 32 GB of onboard storage and there will be no 64 GB version of the tablet.
Sadly, RIM is yet to finalise the launch of the BlackBerry Playbook 4G/LTE in India.
