The BB10 handsets will have 2GB RAM. So either BB10 needs 2GB, or RIM are being very generous in over-spec'ing. Whether BB10 will run "effectively" in the 1GB RAM the PB has... I don't know.
Actually, I'm sure BB10 will run on a 1GB PB. Just as (according to the specs) the Windows OS I bought could run on a 512MB PC. Which it did, like a donkey with no legs!

Sometimes I wonder if the Styx song, "Too Much Time On My Hands" was a secret foretelling of the tendency to armchair CEO in discussion forums?
"Now, I'm a jet fuel genius I can solve the world's problems without even trying
I have dozens of friends and the fun never ends
That is, as long as I'm buying
Is it any wonder I'm not the president ...?"

Like I said, Windows ran great in 512MB... you just couldn't run anything else except the OS without it all grinding to a halt!

[Speculation] New Playbook On Its Way
Apparently the Netflix app BlackBerryscoop posted on twitter was proven to be photo shopped.
How can anyone believe anything coming from that twitter account now?

The HDMI out on the existing playbook is 1080P, if they come out with a 10 inch model I think it should be 1080P (1920×1080) display to match HDMI out

well whether we believe him or not, whether hes real or a phoney... i think it is safe to assume that a new playbook will be on its way im sure!!! if BB10 is succesful... then a newer higher spec pb should be on its way... and hopefully with a 7 inch as well a *surprise* 10 inch?... i really hope so, i would love this... i use my pb for almost everything now!!! although ive gotta kick my addiciton for jetpack joyride... its ruining my life... or its completely justified by saying its making jan 30th come quicker by occupying my time

1) Why - current PlayBook is being giving away to clear out dead stock. Manager at the Office Depot where I picked up my $150 64GB PlayBook last month, said it had been in stock for 8 Months. That is a long time for a Retail Store to hold something.
2) RIM has no choice, many companies need larger mobile devices for their employes, if RIM doesn't have a tablet then those customers will have to buy another platforms tablet, and this might lead to them buying phones that use that platform also.
RIM is in a catch 22 situation, don't think they see a Tablet as a good investment right now, but they basically have no choice but have one in their lineup. So I would expect RIM to announce a new Tablet along with BB10, but I think they will do it quietly.

This isn't speculation, it's fact. A very long time ago RIM was already working on a 10" PlayBook which got shelved temporarily due to all the issues that company ran into (including the flop PlayBook launch itself).
A new model running BB10 is definitely in the works and so is the 10" model I just don't know when they're expected to arrive. In case you've all forgotten, RIM has done nothing but continue to say that they're committed to the tablet market.

Personally, I'd love to see a 1.7GHz OMAP 4470 and 2GB RAM on a Playbook. Especially since they'll ALL run better on BB10.
PS: for those concerned about BBScoop's credibility on the forums here, note that they didn't post this here; OP just quoted one of the tweets. And I find his/her tweets have been very credible so far.

Good point for a 10" tablet going 1080p.
Most of BlackBerryScoop tweets are well-thought out and logical guesses.
Anyone can say RIM is planning on a new tablet, doesn't take an insider to think that.XoXoXo

[Speculation] New Playbook On Its Way
If you notice, they never refer to BB10 as a smartphone OS. They have been calling it a mobile computing platform. So it goes without saying there will be more than just the phones.

A new playbook may well be in the offing. But remember the usual cycle of BB launches are in the fall, if I remember correctly.Q 10 for the win!
