RIM's Finally Launching a 4G PlayBook (In Canada)

Illustration for article titled RIM's Finally Launching a 4G PlayBook (In Canada)

RIM is finally releasing a 4G LTE PlayBook. The company announced today that it will debut in Canada next week and it will be available in the U.S. "in the coming months," which hopefully isn't code for "never."

It's pretty much the same PlayBook we're already familiar with—7-inch display, front- and rear-facing cameras, the same contacts and calendar apps, as well as an HDMI port and stereo speakers. While it's good to see RIM pumping out a 4G slate, we'll see if it delivers on its plans for a wider release. [CNET]

I'd have to disagree. Better late than never doesn't apply here. Yeah it's LTE, but RIM is showing up to the party with an antiquated mediocre tablet that they just strapped an LTE chip to. There is absolutely no way this will sell well and will probably actually lose money for RIM. And that doesn't even consider another reputation ding they will take for releasing yet another worthless product.
