While on stage at Web 2.0 Summit RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie mentioned that the upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook would have what he dubs a “Module Cavity” for addons. Engadget points out that the obvious use of such a cavity would be for adding features like 3G or 4G internet access to the Wi-Fi only model or NFC (Near Field Communication” like we mentioned before. Balsillie also mentioned NFC saying that "we’d be fools not to have it in the near-term, and we are not fools."
I think it is great that RIM left themselves room to work with on the very slim BlackBerry PlayBook. I doubt this addon cavity will be user accessible but you never know. It would be really cool to get a tablet where they just change the module for the carrier you want to use it on whether it be CDMA, LTE, or GSM.
What do you think of this Module Cavity? Any creative ideas of what RIM can do with it?
