    Hello Oneil,

    The difference could be that one has radio data enabled, and the other only is wifi enabled. If your PlayBook has 4G data available you'll be able to have access content without wifi.

    As far as cost we are not sure. That also depends on the model as well. A 64 GB model will cost more than a 32 GB model.

    A while back there was rumors flying about that the 4G playbook would have a slightly faster processor and NFC capabilities as well. But those might have changed. Given the fact that the playbook is more than a year old now I would expect some sort of spec upgrade though.

    Hello oneil1986,

    Depends what your needs are, if you're satisfied with the BlackBerry PlayBook (Wi-Fi) model, over the soon to be released 4G PlayBook, it's ultimately up to you.

    I'm safely assuming that the 4G PlayBook will be able to use a (micro) SIM card to access mobile carrier data.

    Thank you.

    If we hear anything more current regarding the PlayBook 4G, we'll be sure to publish it as soon as possible.

    Thank you.

    Hello oneil1986
    As long as you'll save you budget, I am pretty sure you can get the PB 4G..
    As for my advice, I'll consider to wait for it to be released this Q4. However, if you would want to try the awesomeness of the PlayBook, then you can go ahead and get just the 16GB (if this still available from where you are located)

    A micro sim can be inserted to this new PB 4G as mentioned to a lot of rumors and leaked photos on different sites. This will allow you to stay online on any social networking sites or any apps that requires data connection even without the wi-fi.

    It is still up to you which one works better
