RIM’s first foray into the tablet market - with the BlackBerry PlayBook - was nothing less than an absolute disaster, so the Canadians are well and truly done with tablets, right? Right?
Nope. Unwavering BlackBerry fans N4BB reckon RIM is planning to release not one but two spanking new BlackBerry PlayBooks this year.
The first will be yet another 7in BlackBerry PlayBook. It’ll be released in April and rock PlayBook OS 2.0. That’s all we know for now.
The second will be a 10in BlackBerry PlayBook, landing in December. It’s widely believed that RIM had such a device in the proverbial pipeline last year, but canned it when their first tablet effort fell flat on its face.
However, N4BB reckons – get this – that RIM was simply too busy working on BlackBerry 10. Ahem.
Speaking of BlackBerry 10, our BlackBerry-worshipping friends suspect the first device will slip from a rumoured May release to September, and that there’ll be just one BlackBerry 10 phone this year.
RIM, RIM, RIM. What are we gonna do with you?
