Shortly after BlackBerry had launched the PlayBook tablet PC, it was but natural for everyone to speculate it would next be a 10 inch tablet that the company would now devote its resources in. So while rumor mills went over board with news of a bigger PlayBook tablet PC, things changed dramatically in between so that there also are now rumors that the rumored 10 inch tablet has been given a quiet burial.
The development though shouldn’t come as a surprise given the less than enthusiastic response that the current PlayBook has met with. Experts believe the 7 inch PlayBook has been a sort of half-hearted attempt on part of its makers and that the tablet has been pushed while still not being completely flawless. Inside sources point out that RIM had diverted many of those engaged in the company’s smartphone division into developing the PlayBook. For the time being, RIM would concentrate on their smartphone segment which is why it is believed the PlayBook would be the lone tablet for some time at least.
