New BB tablet next year?
BlackBerry's business problem - Fortune Tech
"Peter Walker, the company's senior director for enterprise product management, trumpets the "BlackBerry Balance" technology, for example, which lets business customers control employees' devices while enabling the use of personal apps. It is also beefing up its offerings from independent app developers. A bevy of new phones and tablets built around a redesigned operating system is expected next year."
I love the hardware... and hope they focus on the software issues.

I don't think we'll see too many changes to the tablet hardware next year other than cellular-enabled versions to be sold by the carriers. Rumors of a larger 10" version don't seem to have much weight.
RIM has indicated that all current Playbooks will support the upcoming OS changes.

it'd be nice if they did some hardware changes like a LED for a flash...and making use of the flashlight app is actually practical, sd card slot would be nice too."Two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former."

Well I don't believe they'll bring a revamped Playbook, but instead that 10in (or so) size tablet we hear so much about.
That should keep current Playbook owners not feeling left out, and give everyone a variety to choose. Perhaps they'll keep it at $499.99, and lower the Playbook to $399.99 or what notAre you really that bored to read my signature, or am I just that interesting to you?

I would say they will bring out a new one....only difference will be OS2 but RIM will promote it as new.
"New Playbook with 2.0 updates" Better than the first...different but same.Everyday is a good day...some are just better than others.
Have a Blackberry 9930 for sale, message for info.

I don't see it happening. I think many have put their respective finger on this issue - there is only one hot selling tablet. All the others including the pb are struggling to grab their place in the sun. It would be nice if rim just could stablize things, make OS2 a success and accept that it will be a niche product - that does not make it a failure - just not the top seller. But they still need to figure out who or what they are marketing this device to/for. They went for a second rate bookseller or, at least, app, no open video chat, poor business apps and expected it to take off.
