Thorsten Heins, RIM’s CEO, made comments during the recent quarterly report that the 4G BlackBerry PlayBook would be released in the coming weeks. This was originally expected to launch last year but obviously things got in the way. Earlier this week a document surfaced online that showed the 3G/4G PlayBook to hit shelves sometime in Q4 – most likely it’ll be widely available at all carriers, including Bell, Rogers and TELUS.

This device has somewhat been a mystery, coming and going in various leaked images. Today, it’s arrived online once again. N4BB has had some hand-on time with the PlayBook 4G and states that it’s currently running OS (PlayBook OS v2.0.1.358 was officially released in April) and takes a microSIM. No indication of OS 2.1, but that might come with the PlayBook upgrade in Q1/Q2 2013. As stated in previous posts, the 4G PlayBook is expected to come with a 1.5GHz processor and the report notes that the PlayBook is “a little snappier.” Sadly, BBM was MIA from these pictures and has not yet been included.
