3G BlackBerry PlayBook Coming in March-April; LTE Version To Follow

Written By Sam on 26 January 2011

Blackberry seem to have a winner on their hands this time with the Blackberry PlayBook 3G, which rivals the Apple iPad, enabling multitasking. It is sleek and slim and can be carried around unlike the iPad which is slightly larger by comparison. It is based on a dual core ARM processor with a 1 GB memory, a 3 MP front camera and a 5 MP rear camera—far ahead of rivals. In addition, it is Wi-Fi enabled and has Bluetooth 2.1, with support for Flash Player 10.1, Adobe Reader, MP3 and Java. The screen has a resolution of 1024 x 600.

There are reports that this device will be released March or April this year. There are also reports that an LTE Playbook will be released soon following in the footsteps of the 3G. A 4G Playbook is also around the corner so it will be a difficult decision for buyers to make. For buyers outside the US where 4G is not so widespread, the 3G might probably the device of choice. Some might prefer the WiFi version since they will not have to go in for another data plan with this device. Anyway, later this year, carriers will probably be offering both versions. It is pitted against touch competition not only from the iPad but also from Samsung Galaxy Tab and Dell Streak.
