    PlayBook 4G LTE Available August 9th

    RIM has just confirmed that the PlayBook 4G LTE will be available on select Canadian carriers beginning August 9th. Many people have been patiently waiting for the release of this device since its announcement late last year. Others have opted to pass on the device, due its high price. The device will ship with OS 2.0.1, but will have the built in support for 4G LTE networks.

    The Inside BlackBerry Blog gave us four reasons to consider purchasing The new 4G LTE PlayBook:


    • It’s fast — and I mean fast: Whether you’ve got to do a web search for some information, answer that urgent email, or check in on your social networks, this tablet is there when you need it, serving up the details at the speed you need them.


    • Sized right — take it with you: As a frequent traveler, one thing I know is that I don’t like to be bogged down. The size of this tablet is ideal for me because of its compact size and light weight.


    • Browse the web like you mean it: When I’m looking for information on-the-go, I prefer not to get the watered-down mobile version, especially when there are tons of websites built to have a rich multimedia experience. This tablet supports more HTML 5 content than any other native tablet browser on the market** and it plays Adobe® Flash® for that side of you that loves streaming videos and playing games.


    • Movies and TV shows in your hands: Along with the introduction of the new 4G LTE variant, all Canadian BlackBerry PlayBook tablet customers will be able to access the BlackBerry® Video Store for the first time. The app is available for download in the BlackBerry App World™ storefront. Now you’ll have access to a video catalogue filled with thousands of movies and television shows, with new releases to be made available for purchase or rent the same day they come out on DVD.

    Canadians will also be able to experience RIM's new BlackBerry Video Store for the first time. This is really cool new feature we have been hearing about for a while now. Canadians can rejoice as they are truly getting something special today.

    i had an ipad and found out how much i disliked it sold it on kijiji to get my playbook! i dont know about exact pricings in Africa but i know carriers are offfering deals with plans that can give you up to 200 dollars off the 4G playbook with is a great incentive and makes it a comparable price to the just wifi versions. in my opinion the playbook is the best tablet hands down. os 2.1 update will be awesome and then a bb10 upgrade will put it way ahead software wise compared to other tablets, the hardware specs are easily comparable if not better than most of the tablets out there

    Sorry, One more thing I have to ask, about its cost and You have only posted about its features but what about its limitations. Is it robust enough?
