Apparently the reception received by the 7-inch BlackBerry PlayBook hasn't convinced RIM (Research In Motion) to make a bigger push in the tablet space, with the latest rumors saying that the Canadian company has decided to halt the development of a 10-inch PlayBook.
Reportedly planned for an autumn release, RIM's 10-inch tablet is supposed to have been shelved in order to allow more resources to be invested into a BlackBerry superphone running a QNX-based platform. Of course this doesn't mean a 10-inch PlayBook won't be released, it just means we'll probably have to wait a lot longer for it.
The alleged smartphone, which could debut early next year (a 2011 arrival is not that likely), is said to have a 1.2 GHz single-core processor (but an pre-release update to a dual-core chip is possible) and a 4.3-inch touchscreen with a '900+' resolution, probably qHD (960 x 540). Wait and see...
