RIM may be finding the going tough, but the company is not going to quit the game easily. Latest rumors reveal that the company is ready with the launch of the much-awaited 4G-compatible BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.
The tab was actually announced way back in 2011 at the Mobile World Congress, but internal and external hurdles RIM had to face delayed the launch.
Rumors were aplenty and leaked images unofficially confirmed the existence of the device, but no solid clue on the possible launch date ever emerged.
However, now a leaked shot of a reportedly official document tells us that the launch of the tablet is imminent. According to the latest leak, the 4G LTE enabled BlackBerry PlayBook will be launched first via the Canadian network carrier Belland later migrate to other Canadian carriers.
According to the leaked document, the device will be launched on July 31. The leaked document, thought to have originated from Bell circles, shows the carrier’s plans to sell the device for $549.95.
The device will pack a 7 inch display at 1024 x 600 resolution and a 1.5 GHz dual core processor chip. 4G LTE connectivity, 1 GB of RAM and a descent 5 mega pixel rear cam which will help users shoot even 1080p Full HD videos are other features. It will also pack a 3 MP front cam and a 4800 mAh battery with a 32 GB storage option.
But we will have to wait and see how this device with such a price tag will fight the war with the Android and Apple rivals.
