    Looks exactly like the 7 inch one - LED, camera, ports on the bottom. Without anything to show scale, it could be the current one.

    i hope they don't do it.

    one of rim's biggest problems is over saturation of products. having 3 or 4 models per product line just leads to confusion. do we need 2 7" models, and probably 2 10" models?

    whittle things down to 1 tablet with 3g/4g/lte/whatever optional. have one model cell phone per product range. most people don't need to know there is a curve gsm or curve cdma. they just walk into their carrier's store and buy a phone. it just works on their carrier's network. make things simple because the majority of people are simple...tons

    That looks like the current playbook. I do not believe it. They should have placed a current 7" one up against it then I would believe.

    One of the things that people really never complain about the PB is the handy size and portability. Jumping into the 10" model market (which every manufacturer and their mother is a part of) is a bad move IMO.

    This one has silver edging and definitely appears thinner than the 7" version. Not only that, the ports under the BlackBerry logo do not look at all similar to the current model. Looks like a USB3 port is there. Also, the silver edging has a texture that the current version doesn't.

    This is a picture of the current playbook.

    Why wouldn't they need 7" and 10" tablets. Some apps need more screen space.

    It's not like you can put anything on the 7" playbook

    seems strange to release another tablet after they essentially had to give the last one away

    the silver edging is most likely from the camera flash. it's a picture from the current 7''.

    You can see all that from a blurred pic taken from virtually head on with a flash?

    I also don't see any sign of the magnetic charging port. I'll check with my wife to see if its possible that I'm wrong.

    Granted it's not crystal clear. But it's not the picture quality of a sasquatch taken 1km away either.

    I could be totally wrong. It's really what to me, appears to be a thinner tablet that really makes me wonder. The aspect ratio would be the same as a 7" model so it would be nice to have had something else in the picture to help determine approximate size.

    Co-signed. That's the current one. Somebody's just trying to get attention on their Twitter posts. The least they could have done was clean the thing before taking a picture. Look at all the dust/crumbs in the crevices and speaker grille.

    Not affiliated with the blog in any way. Totally understand your questioning, which is absolutely normal. However we all had to start with post #1.

    I do agree, 7 inch is just perfect for portability...

    10" is too big for me, my 7" is the perfect companion for my Bold 9900
    I do not plan to buy a 10" ...
