Research in Motion has confirmed they will launch an updated version of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet later this year.

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.

It also reported that the new PlayBook will look similar to the current model.

A Research in Motion tablet, thought to be the new PlayBook, passed through the FCC for testing earlier this year in March. The device had built-in HSPA+ and LTE radios, and confirmed speculation surrounding specifications of the new device.
