BlackBerry PlayBook 3G & 4G In carrier Testing With OS 2.0.1


Today we received a tip that several US and international carriers are already testing PlayBook 3G and 4G with OS 2.0.1. Those line up along side to other rumors we heard in the past. The list below indicates the carriers and country where they are currently testing the devices. The tipster also mentioned that the launch is scheduled for  May which would line up nicely with RIM hosting BlackBerry world 2012 at the beginning of may it would make sense for them to announce the device at their own event.

So how many of you will actually purchase a BlackBerry PlayBook 4G/3G?

  1. Nice… Any for developers? 😛

  2. I will if the price is right with a contract. with the data sharing options in Canada it makes it worth it

  3. Excellent – I will probably grab one on Bell Mobility’s network.

  4. T-Mobile US implies that this isn’t only a LTE option…

  5. Good to see Verizon on the list. Hope to see a 4G LTE launch there!

  6. I do hope the OS 2.0.1 to be released SOON!!!

  7. Only having limited knowledge of software development, the version (2.0.1) tells me that this isn’t going to be a big revision (as compared to 2.1.0).. but I could be wrong. Any news on what will be added/updated in the new release?

  8. is reporting Playbook OS 2.1 and BlackBerry 10 devices running a sweet browser that outperforms many on the HTML5 compatibility tests. In fact, the RIM browser is the most compatible HTML5 mobile browser out there — tablet or phone!

    RIM Tablet OS 2.1 BlackBerry PlayBook 381 10 bonuses
    BlackBerry 10 BlackBerry PlayBook 381 10 bonuses
    RIM Tablet OS 2.0 BlackBerry PlayBook 373 9 bonuses
    iOS 5.1 Apple iPad, iPhone 324 9 bonuses
    Android 4.0 ASUS tablet 273 3 bonuses
    Android 2.3 Google Nexus S 189 1 bonus

    HTML5 compatibility contributes greatly to browser rendering speed, and rendering is the biggest cause of lag when browsing.

    The PlayBook also supports flash — adding to the excellent browsing experience!

  9. With BB 7.1’s mobile hotspot, I no longer have a need for a 4G PlayBook, but I understand some “standalone” users might now be open to getting a PlayBook.

    It can’t arrive soon enough to help RIM in this quiet cycle before the release of BB 10.

    Anyone know what is “new” in PlayBook OS 2.1?

  10. can this 4/3G playbook make phonecalls? that would be the icing on the cake….

  11. So BB event over, no mention of the Playbook 3G for the UK, so much for the speculation of an announcement, more customers lost, including me who will now look for an alternative, unless I pick up information in the next day or so with a confirmed release date. Have big events RIM but get the basics right. Customer service is all and until they get this, decline will continue.
