    " Indefinite launch of new devices may affect RIM Indonesian market

    Although the BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 is slated for release this February, its manufacturer, Research in Motion (RIM), is yet to confirm when the device will actually enter the Indonesian market.

    David J. Smith, senior vice president of BlackBerry PlayBook, announced in an official blog post in October that RIM had decided to postpone the release of the device to ensure that “the expectation of developers, enterprise customers and end-users” were met.

    However, past experiences show that there is usually a gap between the official launch of a product with when the device actually hits the domestic market. The first version of the PlayBook was released for the US market in April 2011 but only entered Indonesia in July.

    “We haven’t announced any formal timing at the moment,” Oliver Pilgerstorfer, RIM senior PR manager for Southeast Asia, told The Jakarta Post. "

    I think the only new devices will the the 3g/4g PlayBook, with maybe some minor tweaks.

    There has been nothing official said about new hardware, so any talk of that is speculation. Generally anything you've read about "PlayBook 2.0" is referring to the new OS, which if nothing else is not tied to new hardware: all existing PlayBooks will get the update for free.

    If there is new hardware, I don't expect we'll see it called 2.0 as it is likely to be merely a small bump in some specs (e.g. maybe more RAM, slightly faster CPU, etc), unless we're talking the rumoured 10" model, which is unlikely to be released any time soon.
