Company CEO, Thorsten Heins confirmed at a BlackBerry World press event that the new PlayBook will feature 4G LTE connectivity.

Meanwhile, according to a report by The Canadian Reviewer, the new tablet will feature an improved 1.5GHz dual-core processor, as well as Near Field Communication (NFC) technology.
