A while back RIM announced that they would eventually release a 4G version of the Blackberry Playbook. Unfortunately the details of the device have remain unknown and there was no release date in sight, at least until recently when images of what appeared to be a 4G enabled Playbook made its rounds on the internet. Now thanks to the folks over at the Canadian Reviewer, it seems that the 4G Playbook has been confirmed along with some of its specs. The tablet will feature an upgrade in terms of processor and will now see a 1.5GHz dual-core chipset under its hood. It will also come with NFC capabilities and 4G LTE connectivity. Additional details are expected to be revealed at the Blackberry World 2012 keynote later but safe to assume based on the leaked photos, the 4G version of the Playbook should resemble its predecessor in terms of its design.
