Default BlackBerry PlayBook 4G LTE arriving in Canada on August 9

After a few leaks and rumors, Research In Motion (RIM) has officially announced the PlayBook 4G LTE, which it claims is “ultra-powerful, ultra-portable, and ultra-fast.”

The device’s main selling point is its 4G LTE connectivity, 32GB of internal memory, and faster dual-core processor, which has been bumped up from 1GHz to 1.5GHz. The rest of the specs, however, haven’t changed much. The PlayBook 4G LTE includes the same 7-inch display, 1GB of RAM, 5MP back-facing camera, 3MP front-facing camera, HDMI out, and stereo speakers. It will, of course, run BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.

The PlayBook 4G LTE will launch first in RIM’s home country of Canada on August 9, where it will be available on Bell, Rogers, and TELUS. Other countries will follow “in the coming months,” including the US, Europe, South Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Pricing is still unknown at this point, but it will reportedly retail for approximately $549.95.

With BlackBerry 10 still in development and many great tablets on the market, does it make sense to pick up a PlayBook? Maybe if you’re completely into the RIM ecosystem.
