    RIM to launch 10-inch BlackBerry PlayBook this fall - OS 7 devices delayed?


    The guys over at BGR claim to have been told by 'multiple sources' that RIM is planning on releasing the next PlayBook design around this year's holiday season. Rumor has it the next PlayBook design will be a 10 inch model, adding to the already 7 inch model.

    Also, via unconfirmed information - the just announced BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 will not be launching until mid-August at the earliest. The previous timeframe for the launch was during June/July. The launch has been delayed for reasons unknown. Additionally, the rest of RIM’s 2011 lineup won’t be announced until BlackBerry’s DevCon conference on October 18th. Apparently the hierarchy at RIM have been vocally unhappy about the “disproportionate” reallocation of resources to the PlayBook away from the OS 7 lineup.


    How about it? Would you buy a 10 inch PlayBook?

    Having owned a 10 inch iPad, I can say that those few extra inches makes a huge difference for ease of usability, watching videos, playing games. It's borderline laptop.

    There is enough difference for both sizes to have a place in the market.

    With everything I've been researching on its specs, I don't see where you can make calls. I do see that you can pair it with your BB device but still not seeing ability to make calls. So its just a fancy, mini, full functioning laptop?

    thats a negative. i have played w/ hubby's ipad2 and after having my PB his ipad feels incredibly bulky. i love watching movies
    on the pb and while the 10inch is nice....its not a game changer for me.

    that being said i am glad that they are coming out w/ the 10 to meet everyones needs.

    For me it just really makes looking at your tablet very easy. And the browsing experience is great because you won't have to zoom as much with a 10 inch tablet.
