RIM 7-inch tablet has faster processor, fixed storage

Blackberry has released the PlayBook 3G+ in the United Kingdom. The tablet has been made available in the country with a single storage capacity of 32GB, and while the 3G data connection is a welcome addition, it does not have the capability of connecting to the newly-launched and faster national 4G network.

The PlayBook 3G+ keeps the 7-inch, 1024x600 display of its predecessor, but now has a higher dual-core 1.5GHz processor with 1GB of RAM. A 3-megapixel front-facing and 5-megapixel rear-facing camera provide video chat and HD video recording capabilities.

The 420 ($690) pricetag will be an issue to potential customers, considering a 32GB iPad mini with access to a mobile network is around 30 ($50) cheaper, though the slightly-shrunk Blackberry brand loyalty may still help RIM sell some PlayBooks.
