"BlackBerry PlayBook New Look"Jim Balsillie, the ex-CEO of RIM has confirmed that the new CEO of RIM, Thorsten Heins will start his work into developing the reworked BlackBerry PlayBook for a launch early in 2012, despite the fact that the prospect of a invigorated tablet has not assisted the company’s diving share price.

According to the reports, it has been described as a revamp of the poorly selling PlayBook tablet projected early this year, the latest PlayBook is alleged to be the substitute for the 7-inch 3G+ model strike in a leaked roadmap of RIM earlier this month.

Unlike the RIM’s initial BlackBerry 10 smartphones, the new PlayBook won’t feature LTE. It has been noted that there will be a chipset limitation that is preventing RIM from including 4G connectivity that could turn up for another new PlayBook, this time a 10-inch model, projected toward the end of the 2012.

Earlier leaks have recommended that RIM is getting ready to hit with PlayBook OS 2.0, the updated software for the tablet that will land next month, with 1280 x 800 screen supports, signifying one or both of the latest devices will have a higher-resolution display.

However, although investors had been calling out for in the CEO position at RIM, Hein’s elevation to chief executive was apparently not quite what they had in mind. Regarding the strategy for RIM, the new CEO of RIM says that it’s going to be continuity, however it’s not going to be a standstill, declining to stand for an extensive turnaround of the included ecosystem plans Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis had already put into place.

On the other hand, the first BlackBerry 10 smartphone is likely to strike the market by the end of 2012.
