BlackBerry PlayBook 4G LTE

It's looking like the wait for the 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook may soon be over. Yes, we've been saying that for a while but this time around, there is a little more than normal weight to it. The folks over at Mobile Syrup have come up with a document purportedly showing that launch date as July 31st on Bell and presumably, other carriers as well. In addition to the launch date, specs make an appearance although, not surprising as they've been leaked out before.

  • 1.5GHz dual-core processor
  • 4G LTE with HSPA+
  • 5MP rear camera
  • 3MP front camera
  • 4800 mAh battery
  • 1GB RAM

Oddly, the document makes no mention of NFC but that's appeared numerous times already. At this point, it is noted that it will retail for $550 in a 32GB version but we'll wait and see how concrete that is simply because pre-release documentation has a tendency to change. If it does end up retailing for that, is the 4G LTE something that would be worth the additional costs?
