With the smaller 7 inch PlayBook tablet slowly settling down, more so with twin OS updates that RIM came out with in quick succession, the focus now is probably on a bigger 10 inch PlayBook that is rumored to be under development. So while there are reports of RIM having ramped up its production on the back of an increase in demand, there also come news, though from various unconfirmed sources about the bigger PlayBook making a market splash sometime during the holidays.
While this is yet to be accorded the official status from RIM, pure business sense does point out it would let RIM have better control over the tablet market with two products in two different size segments. Also, it would be probably safe to assume the next PlayBook will come loaded with all the necessary software enhancements, such as an e-mail client to ensure better consumer penetration right from the start.
