After weathering some less-than-glowing reviews early on, the BlackBerry PlayBook now seems to be enjoying a warmer-than-expected reception by consumers. RIM, in turn, has treated owners to a pair of OS updates, a shiny, new Facebook app, and the addition of BBM to the BlackBerry Bridge apps. But perhaps you’re holding off because you think a 7″ tablet just isn’t quite big enough.

If Boy Genius Report’s sources are correct, you might only be waiting a few more months if you’d prefer a 10″ PlayBook.  RIM is said to have ramped up production of the original PlayBook, so confidence may well be building in Waterloo. Whether that confidence translates into the company making a pre-holiday splash with an embiggened PlayBook remains to be seen, since BGR’s information has yet to be officially confirmed.

  1. “quit big enough” – typo there? Regarding BB – how can such company price its product so high and still deliver poor product? Now the same in 10″ ahead?

  2. RIM has now partnered with Microsoft. Don’t they know of any MS partnerships and the history of those? Nokia has also made the same mistake. I will be telling everyone that I know NOW to get an Android device – I used to buy Nokia phones and devices, now, those days have ended. Same is true for RIM – Microsoft is all about customer and developer lock-in tactics… so, if you want to be free of all that, then go with Android or some other LINUX device (note – Meego is not dead, there are those that will be having this platform used AND because it is LINUX and the GPL applies, there will always be some life to it, even if it is for the use of those who want to self-modify YOUR device.
