BlackBerry PlayBook 2 Concept Looks Sleek, Packs Powerful Hardware

PlayBook2_SpecsBack in 2011, BlackBerry unveiled the PlayBook tablet, making the device the first tablet that BlackBerry has released. At that time the device was a pretty solid tablet, although the lack of apps and native BlackBerry support was kind of disappointing.

Fast forward three years and it looks like BlackBerry might have given up on the tablet scene, despite the rumors. However a recent interview has revealed that BlackBerry has not written tablets off yet and that there are plans for the PlayBook’s successor in the future.

In the meantime some concept images of a PlayBook 2 have surfaced in the forums, giving us a glimpse as to what a newer PlayBook model might look like, and so far we have to say that we like what we are seeing, although admittedly the polished edges do remind us of Apple’s iPad, but what do you guys think?

Of  course when it comes to hardware, it’s really anyone’s guess as to what BlackBerry might stick under the hood. However the concept pictured above looks like it is going for some pretty high-end features.

According to the designer, TheJelen, the PlayBook 2 will pack a 10-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2048×1536. It will also be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset clocked at 2.3GHz, an 8MP rear-facing camera a 4MP front-facing camera, 4GB of RAM, 32/64GB storage options with the ability to expand via microSD, and a whopping 10,000mAh battery life.

It sounds pretty impressive, doesn’t it? Not to mention it looks very pretty to boot! What do you guys think? Would this be a BlackBerry PlayBook you could get on board with?
