RIM’s latest offering comes with a hefty price tag

BlackBerry PlayBook 3G arrives in the UK

RIM’s 3G version of its BlackBerry PlayBook has launched in the UK, with a whopping £420 price tag.

With a 1.5GHz processor, 7-inch screen and 32GB of space, the PlayBook has a 5MP rear-facing camera and a 3MP front facing one.

The tablet’s price is not far off Apple’s 32GB 4G LTE-enabled iPad Mini, making this 3G only device quite pricey. The fact that it is almost £200 more expensive than a 32GB 3G Google Nexus 7 doesn’t help matters either.

With LTE now available in the UK, those interested in getting their hands on a PlayBook may decide to hold out until RIM’s 4G LTE version makes it’s way across the pond.
