Clues in BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 suggest new BlackBerry tablet is coming with LTE support
According to N4BB, clues found in the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0, due out in February, suggest that a new BlackBerry tablet is coming with support for LTE connectivity and a screen resolution of 1280 x 768. The hint that the next RIM produced tablet would have support for LTE came from  images found on the BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 OS Developer Beta. Icons were found showing a 4G and a 4G LTE logo. These are the top banner images that you would find alongside other notifications. RIM had been planning for a 4G version of the original PlayBook with Sprint originally saying that it would release a WiMax enabled version until they decided against offering such a device.

Additionally, a leaked screenshot shows some support for a screen with resolution of 1280 x 768. The current 7 inch BlackBerry PlayBook screen has resolution of 1024 x 600. This higher resolution screen is most likely being tested on new versions of the PlayBook that will be run by the new BlackBerry 10 OS. With 4G LTE connectivity and a higher resolution screen, we would probably see this new BlackBerry tablet launch no earlier than sometime early next year.
