10″ PlayBook Production Stopped In Favor of First BlackBerry ‘Superphone’

10″ PlayBook Production Stopped In Favor of First BlackBerry ‘Superphone’

A few weeks back we exclusively received word on some of the details regarding the rumored 10″ BlackBerry PlayBook aka PlayBook 2. However, it seems RIM has changed their mind, as we’ve received new word that the entire 10″ PlayBook development has been canceled. The reason we’re told is for production focus on the first QNX powered BlackBerry ‘Superphone’. Some of the specs we’ve been told on the new ‘Superphone’ include:

  • Single-core 1.2GHz processor (same as Bold 9900), word has it that the same dual-core processor in PlayBook is a huge battery killer, but a dual-core processor is still a possibility
  • 900+ screen resolution
  • 4.3″ touchscreen

We’ve also learned that since development of the 10″ PlayBook has ceased, RIM has started pushing the LTE 4G PlayBook variant. It is currently said to be scheduled for release in October 2011. There is no known release date for the BlackBerry ‘Superphone’ or a known codename. Of course these specs and information are not confirmed by RIM as yet and may change, but make sure you keep it locked to N4BB.com for any more information.
