BlackBerry PlayBook 3G+ Specs

blackberry-roadmap-2012-bgr-16

The latest leaked road map shows the specs for the upcoming 7” PlayBook with HSPA+ but no mention of an LTE or 10” version. The main differences with the PlayBook is that it will support carrier network not just Wi-Fi. It is interesting to see RIM is calling it 3G+ on this slide not 4G like all the carriers are calling their networks right now.

  • 1.5 GHz Dual Core Processor – TI OMap 4460
  • 42Mbps HSPA+

  1. 42 Mpbs is crazy fast

    Why do we need LTE again?

    lol my home cable internet is 10 Mpbs

    • haha just bc man, we just need it we don’t know why though.

      Thats what the latest trend is. I am lucky to get 10 MB at home TMO speeds are faster than it already.

      • The top Rogers Cable Internet speed is 50 Mpbs…

      • it all comes down to this

        1. Carriers just built this huge expensive new network that is low on costs as its so new
        2. The old 3G/3G+ network old, breaksdown often and is congested and requires lots of maintenance, thus, costs are higher
        3. With everyone on LTE, you guarantee higher data usage = higher revenues

        Its all about reducing costs and increasing revenue

        we don’t need the speeds

        the carriers need our money

  2. I have been thinking, the more LTE is adopted, the less congested the 3G and 3G+ networks will be

    thus actually making the 3G/3G+ networks faster

    does this make sense with anyone else?

    Shit if I can get 20 Mpbs on my Playbook I will be ridiculously happy

  3. Charter says they do 16 Mpbs although I rarely see 10…on a good day. Usually 8-9. I wish it was 16

  4. Hey guys. I’m still rockin a storm2 and iv’e been waitin on those BB10 devices like everyone else but did it really take them a year to put a radio in this thing? WTH? The last thing I’m looking for in a hardware provider is when they hold out on hardware so they can call it am upgrade like someone else I know. Is it too much to ask be able to have a cake I can also eat?

  5. I’ll stick with my current Playbook with no 3G/3G+. I don’t need an additional cost for yet another data package when I can just bridge to my phone like I do now.

  6. RIMM really should have upped the specs more to compete with the Ipad 3. Maybe by then, they can integrate the cascades into the OS.
