BlackBerry PlayBook: 10-inch version incoming?

Report suggests next-gen PlayBook will land with extensive software update.

The BlackBerry PlayBook has barely been on US shelves a month, but already attention is turning to its successor. Or rather, its new stablemate. See, the rumour mill reckons there’ll be a BlackBerry PlayBook 10-inch out by the end of the year, to go alongside the current 7-inch model.

BGR says it’s got the inside line from a string of sources about the new tab. The screen size is the big selling point here, playing up to Steve Jobs’ claim that 7-inch slates are “tweeners” that would be “dead on arrival.”

It’s hoped the new version of the PlayBook will land alongside a software update that brings native email and BBM, features which are distinctly missing from the current version.

The PlayBook has been the star of the show at this week’s BlackBerry World in Florida. We’ve been going hands-on with RIM’s iPad-botherer, as well as its new BlackBerry Bold Touch smartphone. Check out our hands-on videos for more.
