BlackBerry PlayBook 4G reappears as launch comes closer
ran faster than the current version of the BlackBerry PlayBook. Much of that could be due to the faster dual-core 1.5GHz processor on the newer tablet. There is some speculation that RIM has started to push these tablets to its corporate partners and other channels of distribution, which means that a launch for the general public can't be too far away. Of course, RIM being RIM, it appears as though BlackBerry Messenger is not installed on the tablet. If BBM wasn't one of the most popular BlackBerry applications, no one would care, but as it stands, those with BlackBerry Bridge will be able to access BBM.
The recent confidential roadmap we told you about a few days ago shows the 4G PlayBook launching in this year's Q4 with a BlackBerry 10 version of the tablet expected in the first or second quarter of 2013. Then, in the third quarter of next year, RIM is supposed to launch a 10 inch tablet currently code named
For those BlackBerry fans hoping that the platform survives, the fact that RIM continues to look ahead can either be seen as a sign of confidence or a sign of denial.

Actualy I think it's a sign of denial, they are a great brand, but they failed in bringing true innovation... maybe they will get back on their feet, just time will tell...

I think they may have a point. We should stop looking at ourselves North Americans as the only consumers. With their Hugh following in both African i.e Nigeria and Asian i.e Malaysia they can survive. The market share loss can be compensated with restructuring.
