A user on the Crackberry forum is posting pictures of what he claims to be a PlayBook 4G. Could this be the next version of the Research In Motion tablet?
To be clear, this could be a fake but he does post some other photos which clearly shows a SIM slot. Other than that, it kind of looks very similar to last year’s 7-inch tablet from RIM.
If this is true, this wouldn’t be the first time RIM tried a “4G” PlayBook. Remember, Sprint said it would have a WiMax-powered PlayBook but it was eventually cancelled late last year.
We’ve heard rumors before that we’ll see followups to the PlayBook this year and I wouldn’t be surprised to see these unveiled at the upcoming BlackBerry World. We’ll be there live, so you can follow us for the latest BlackBerry news.
