When Research In Motion first announced the BlackBerry PlayBook, some were skeptical about its appeal. After all, the tablet boasts a 7-inch display--smaller than the iPad's 9.7-inch screen--and it lacks the ability to connect to 3G. The only option available to users away from a Wi-Fi connection is to tether the device with a BlackBerry smartphone. For a device designed with enterprise customers in mind, it didn't sound all that promising.
But little did critics know at the time that RIM had a trump card up its sleeve. The company has announced a new version of the BlackBerry PlayBook, called the BlackBerry 4G PlayBook, which will feature both Wi-Fi and 4G connectivity. It will be made available exclusively on Sprint's network.
Adding 4G to a version of the BlackBerry PlayBook was a smart move on RIM's part. And although the fate of its BlackBerry PlayBook is still in doubt, it seems quite likely that the BlackBerry 4G PlayBook will be a success.
