BlackBerry PlayBook appears with 4G LTE and HSPA+ at the FCC

After more than a year of waiting, BlackBerry users will finally be able to purchase an HSPA+ or 4G LTE PlayBook here in the USA.

This version of the tablet has been tipped perviously to be coming with an upgraded series of specs such as NFC and a dual-core 1.5GHz processor under the hood.

Carrier Three has jumped on the 4G bandwagon, but unlike rival Everything Everywhere, it's using next-gen DC-HSPA rather than LTE. Borrowing the (confusing) nomenclature used by T-Mobile USA and AT&T in the US - calling HSPA+ "4G" despite it being a version of 3G standards - Three's new service will offer up to 42Mbps connections, in theory at least.

T-Mobile skips 84Mbps upgrade for LTE future

Last week T-Mobile finally announced its plants to upgrade its network to long-term evolution (LTE) speeds, now that the possibility of being acquired by AT&T is off the table for good. The LTE portions of T-Mobile network won't be online until next year at the earliest, but in the meantime the company had planned to upgrade all of its HSPA+ towers to a mind-boggling 84 megabits per second. Alas, that's no longer the case - due to the intense cost and preparations needed for the LTE network, T-Mobile's "4G" HSPA+ network won't get above 42MBps maximum.
