Barcelona, Spain - Two new
4G-equipped PlayBook tablets that Research In Motion will offer in the second
half will operate in HSPA+ and LTE networks, joining a previously announced
4G-equipped WiMAX model due at Sprint sometime during the summer.

All will feature Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/a/n.

 The company previously said it also plans
a Wi-Fi-only version
due in the U.S. in early 2011.

The 0.9-pound multi-tasking
device packs a 1GHz dual-core processor and7-inch 1024x600 WSVGA capacitive
touch screen with full multi-touch and gesture support in a 5.1x7.6x0.4-inch
chassis. Other features include 1 GB RAM, dual HD camera/camcorders
(front-facing 3-megapixel camera and 5-megapixel rear facing camera) for video
conferencing, 1080p HD video recording, HDMI output, and support for HTML-5,
Adobe Flash Player 10.1, and Adobe Mobile AIR. They're compatible
out-of-the-box with BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

The Wi-Fi-only version pairs with
a BlackBerry smartphone via a secure Bluetooth connection to access the
Internet as well as display smartphone content and applications.
