We posted the other day that the BlackBerry PlayBook 3G+ had appeared on the UK BlackBerry website. Between you and me I don't think it was meant to, but these things happen from time to time. Anyway, I have actually had the 3G+ for about a month and while it doesn't bring us too much new stuff to the table it will be a nice alternative to some people if they don't currently use a BlackBerry Smartphone as it will give them a data-connected portable tablet.
The price is a little hefty at £345.99 excluding VAT, so at the moment this may only be a plausible option for business users. That said, once we get the update to BlackBerry 10 on the PlayBook this thing is going to rock!
As far as I am aware the specs are the same as the 4G LTE variant in North America (32GB only), however I don't know if LTE will be supported here in the UK. But there is an easy way to find out and that is because I will be putting a EE 4G SIM card in the PlayBok 3G+ next week and we will see what happens, so stay tuned.
One other thing I am a little in the dark about is that there is no available update to OS 2.1 currently for the 3G+, but I expect that to be addressed next week when I would imagine we will see an official announcement from RIM.
