Just to add some more credibility to the information of the BlackBerry PlayBook 4G getting an OS update and the fact that it will soon be arriving for sale, the device has now been certified for mobile networks and as noted in the certification it is currently running OS 2.0.1.668. Interestingly, there is still no actual release date but hey if you're feeling a little adventurous, you can pick one up on Kijiji though we don't really suggest going that route.

BlackBerry PlayBook 4G now certified for mobile networks

Will be interesting to see just how much support the 4G PlayBook get from Carriers.

I'm sure they will all want it because of "duopoly".

Is this why the BB10 phone delay was explained by Lazaridis? The BB PlayBook development had to come first after all...

Confused :|

I hope this is a true 4G tablet (LTE). If its just HSPA+ and Blackberry charges more than the wifi version its DOA.

I'm on TMobile, with a wifi PB and a 9810, I can hook up my PB to my 9810 to access TMobile 4G without paying extra, no limits, what's the big deal? Doesn't everyone have the features I have?

Not everyone has a BlackBerry, and its not always convenient having two devices when I just want a "bigger" screen device around. A 4G device will also see more attention from the carriers than the wifi edition because the carriers can now attach a bill to it. Also, the radio stack on the 4G playbook is also the stack on the BlackBerry 10 devices, any testing and bugs discovered on the 4G playbook now will be incorporated in the BB10, that means a better BB10 experience.
