BlackBerry PlayBook Plays Nice on Sprint WiMAX 4G
At some point in the not too distant future Research In Motion will get around to releasing the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, but the big question was would the BlackBerry PlayBook play nice of a 4G network?
Well the official answer to that question is in as according to an article over on Intomobile by Marin Perez, Sprint has gone all official and announced they will have the new RIM BlackBerry PlayBook surfing their 4G WiMAX network.
In a statement, president and CEO of RIM, Mike Lazaridis said… “RIM believes a significant portion of the tablet market will want a higher performing, multitasking, professional-grade tablet and that is why we chose to design the BlackBerry PlayBook for premium performance with a powerful dual-core processor and multitasking OS. Together with Sprint, we are now building on that performance advantage with 4G and providing an unparalleled mobile experience for users.”
Once the BlackBerry PlayBook actually sees launch it will be the first tablet that can use Sprint’s 4G network although Sprint does offer the Samsung Galaxy Tab the Android tablet plays on Sprint’s 3G network and not WiMAX.
Still no hard and fast word on just when the BlackBerry PlayBook will come out to play though and RIM is still sticking with their original release of “early 2011,” and of course no word of what the tablet will hit your pocket for.
