BlackBerry PlayBook tablet with WiMAX to debut on Sprint’s 4G network this summer

January 6, 2011, By Alex Ion

RIM and Sprint shook hands and announced in a press release that starting this summer, a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet with WiMAX will debut on the carrier’s LTE network.

You guys probably remember from yesterday’s promotional videos that the BlackBerry PlayBook is quite capable when it comes to multimedia, having full support for Adobe Flash applications (no worries in loading YouTube or Facebook on it) and offering HD playback. That’s because it features a dual-core processor under the hood and runs on professional-grade QNX operating system.

”We are excited to bring this powerful new product to our business customers and consumers who rely on Sprint for industry-leading devices as well as one of the best values in wireless. This tablet is a great example of Sprint’s strong partnership with RIM in continuing to bring customers powerful devices to enhance their mobility. We are confident the BlackBerry 4G PlayBook from Sprint will be one of the most anticipated tablets in 2011,” said Steve Elfman, President of Network Operations and Wholesale for Sprint.

RIM seems to be onto something in here. Their BlackBerry PlayBook has a great chance to charm the masses, it’s just a matter of momentum. Don’t you think?
