Research In Motion's BlackBerry PlayBook tablet has been a bust thus far, but that hasn't caused RIM to give up hope. The just-announced 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook adds LTE connectivity and automatically switches to HSPA+ when LTE isn't available. Available first in Canada, the 4G PlayBook comes with a 1.5-GHz dual-core processor, 32 GB of storage, HDMI out, stereo speakers, a 5-MP rear camera and a 3-MP front camera, and a 7-inch (1024-by-600) screen. Cellular carriers in other regions, including the U.S., Europe, South Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean, will get the 4G PlayBook in "the coming months," said RIM. The big question: Will the 4G PlayBook make RIM a player in the tablet market, or is it too late?

re: 10 Tablets That Will Shake Up 2012
Any new 7 inch Android tablets in the works - aside from Amazon's and B&N's? Or, has the Google's Nexus 7 shut down that market for any new offerings from Asus/Tosh/Other?
