Canadian technology company RIM have just announced a new playbook tablet with 4G LTE connectivity. Nothing much has changed from the previous wifi only tablet . The tablet will be available with 32G storage. For more about this pease read press release below from RIM.
WATERLOO, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – August 02, 2012) – Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM)(TSX: RIM) today launched the new 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook tablet with built-in support for cellular networks. The new 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook maintains a sleek and ultra-portable form while delivering overall faster performance over the original BlackBerry PlayBook, as well as support for blazing fast 4G LTE networks. Launching in Canada first, the new 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook allows customers to work more productively and connect to the Internet, as well as access their email, on-line apps, media and content, from more places than ever.
“We’re excited to bring customers the first BlackBerry PlayBook tablet with support for 4G LTE networks,” said David J. Smith, Executive Vice President, Mobile Computing at Research In Motion. “The new 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook offers a broad range of premium features, including a stunning 7 inch display, front and rear facing HD video cameras, HDMI out and stereo speakers, and it also offers premium performance on high speed cellular networks, helping customers to be more productive than ever and to make the most of their time on the go.”
Featuring the latest BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2 software, the 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook tablet gives customers access to high speed mobile networks around the world (LTE and HSPA+)(1) and offers an exceptional, high-fidelity, fast web experience that supports more HTML5 functionality than any other native tablet browser on the market(2). The powerful unified inbox allows users to easily manage multiple personal and work email accounts, as well as messages from Twitter®, Facebook® and LinkedIn, all in one place. The built-in Calendar and Contacts apps offer features to help customers better manage schedules and prepare for more effective meetings. Plus, the apps’ unique integration with social networks can provide customers with a wealth of information about their contacts at their fingertips.
The 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is also enterprise ready. It can be easily managed with BlackBerry Mobile Fusion and includes BlackBerry® Balance technology, which allows a user to use a BlackBerry PlayBook for both work and personal purposes by keeping business information highly secure and separate from personal information.
Out of the box, the 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook tablet comes preloaded with the tools customers need to be productive as well as to have fun, whether in the office, at home or on the road. Thousands of apps for work and play are also available on the BlackBerry App World storefront, such as the recently launched BlackBerry Video Store for all PlayBook customers in Canada, bringing additional functionality and value to customers. The BlackBerry Video Store offers a catalog of thousands of movies and TV shows. Customers can begin watching media as soon as they start to download a file, so they won’t have to wait for the entire file to transfer before they can begin enjoying great entertainment on the tablet’s high resolution display or on an HDTV using the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet’s HDMI output. Canadians can download the free Video Store app on BlackBerry App World.
The 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook tablet will come with 32GB of memory storage and will be available from Bell, Rogers and TELUS in Canada on August 9, 2012.

Happy love day guys hope you enjoy the video above . It’s a masterpiece from google . .
If you have been recently following technology news around the world you will certainly have heard that the blackberry is losing market share in the USA and gaining in the developing world . What could be the reason for this? The following is my opinion on this and why blackberry owners have decided not to sell the company to its rivals .
To be honest nothing connects you to the world like a blackberry. BIS is a revolutionary product from blackberry for only R59 a month you get to surf the net, read emails, watch YouTube and more . This is a great selling point for BB given our meager incomes in Africa.
This is another revolutionary product from BB that has allowed us to communicate beyond our wildest dreams . No more SMS bundles to buy . BBM is a market leader and no other messaging app comes close. I have since stopped using an SMS it’s all BBM thru and thru.
If you have any other reasons why you think BB is popular please leave your comment below …
A month after buying the apple iPad 2 I’m starting to wonder if it was really worth it ? Compared to the other tablets on the market the iPad comes really short . Then the question is what makes it the top tablet in the world ? I think the answer lies in the great marketing campaign done by Apple.
To begin with the iPad lacks connectivity , you are locked to what apple wants u to have not what you want to do. I believe I should have the option to do what I want to do with my property after all it’s mine I bought it ? Apples closed system is very boring and contains so many restrictions. This is where android is coming in slowly but surely becoz it’s offering an alternative that has all the features the iPad has and more. In the end the iPad will end up like the Mac pc that lost out to windows.apple don’t have the consumers at heart , because they love to make profits even at the expense of slave labour in China .
Apples choice of its 30 pin connector is ridiculous … I mean who is still using that today ? Haven’t you heard of mini USB ? Then there is the lack of flash support, no hdmi connectivity, poor camera, the list goes on and on . The famed app store is full of crap apps . There is no angry birds or cuttherope games on the south African store. I can’t buy music on iTunes. so what’s the use for it . In fact I believe the blackberry playbook beats the iPad hands down if not for it’s lack of native email support. Apple has a reputation as being good starters but poor finishers . I stand to be corrected , but only time will tell.
Anyway thats just my opinion, but I am not liking what I bought and I’m regretting every cent I spent .
