Here’s a great ending to the week! N4BB found a little surprise bundled within the latest BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 developer beta. There are icons bundled in OS 2.0 which show 4G and 4G LTE. We’ve known for quite a while now that RIM was planning to release a 4G PlayBook. Along with the 4G icons, there is also one for a SIM card. These icons look very much like what we are use to see on BlackBerry devices and are sized for the notification bar. So even after some carriers backed out of plans to have one, it now appears that the 4G PlayBook project is still a work in progress.
The team at N4BB have also mentioned that there is reference to a screen resolution of 1280×786. As RIM prepares the BlackBerry 10 OS for the PlayBook, I think it’s safe to assume this could be there for the next-generation BB10 smartphones and tablets. So a question for our readers…Are you excited for 4G BlackBerry PlayBook? Or do you think using the BlackBerry Bridge is sufficient?
