CES is experiencing a tablet invasion. With the enterprise tablet market heating up, Research in Motion (RIM) announced that its 4G BlackBerry PlayBook tablet will launch this summer exclusively for Sprint's wireless network.


In the press release, Mike Lazaridis, president and Co-CEO at RIM stated:

RIM believes a significant portion of the tablet market will want a higher performing, multitasking, professional-grade tablet and that is why we chose to design the BlackBerry PlayBook for premium performance with a powerful dual-core processor and multitasking OS. Together with Sprint, we are now building on that performance advantage with 4G and providing an unparalleled mobile experience for users.

Sprint's expanding 4G wireless network currently serves 71 markets across the country. RIM's device will feature support for Adobe Flash and the new BlackBerry Tablet OS. The 4G PlayBook also boasts a seven-inch LCD touchscreen, front- and rear-facing cameras, the ability to play 1080p HD video and support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. No pricing details have been revealed as yet, according to DailyTech.
