    BlackBerry PlayBook 2 Details and Specs Leaked?



    The guys over at N4BB claim to have received some information form sources on a PlayBook 2 device. Their sources say the PlayBook 2 will come in a 10 inch screen. I imagine a 7 inch will continue to be an option as well. Their sources also point out more details for a PlayBook 2:

    • Black & white colored models
    • SIM card slot
    • 4G/WiFi only, no 3G version
    • Thinner frame around screen
    • Able to connect to BES without BlackBerry Bridge

    If indeed the tablet will get all of the above, I do see it being the PlayBook 2. But just a larger 10 inch screen would not warrant a new name. It seems that we all already knew that a second generation PlayBook would be getting these features anyway. The tablet market competition demands it. Remember, this is only rumors at this point as there is no hard evidence to support the above sources. And like I said, it's obvious the next tablet would head in this direction. Did you get the 7 inch PlayBook? Would a larger 10 inch screen fit you better?

    The first model is a WiFi only model. Any network capable model will have a sim card slot. Which is why calling this the PlayBook 2 because of a bigger screen and a sim card slot is a bit jumping the gun.

    7 inch screen is fine. I would rather the concentrate on perfecting the OS, than looks or size.

    This would be great if the BB Playbook 2 has 3g capabilities.

    The other specs I can imagine would be:

    Faster process + more ram
    Better cameras (even though the ones on the 1st Playbook are fine)
    Longer battery life
    What about 3D add on!

    Oh I so want one now. hahaha
