It seems like RIM has not given up its tablet aspirations, yet, despite the first PlayBook being a financial disaster for the BlackBerry maker. Vietnamese site Tinhte has acquired photographs of the 4G version of the current PlayBook as well as a bigger variant, which is sporting a 10-inch display. We had all heard about RIM preparing a 10-inch variant but it was thought that the project had been cancelled.
The latest rumors indicate that RIM could launch the 4G variant of the current PlayBook on July 31, which is tomorrow. We are not sure why anyone would buy a PlayBook right now after what happened with the original PlayBook. Probably RIM is already sitting on an inventory of these PlayBooks and would like to clear them off, we do not know. Having said that, the PlayBook is the only currently available product in the market that will be updated to BlackBerry 10 whenever RIM launches its next generation operating system.
