The writing has already been on the wall and now that’s the way things are likely to unfold in the next few days. Sprint is all set to wash its hands off tablet devices like the BlackBerry PlayBook and the EVO View 4G, as indicated in their listing for tablets to be reaching the end of life. One of the replacements that we know of right now is the 4G capable PlayBook that RIM has stated will come in for the current PlayBook version. RIM hasn’t stated for sure when it will be ready with the launch of the upgraded PlayBook while Sprint, on its part, has stated it will roll out its 4G LTE network by the middle of 2012 in select locations. However, the countdown to the phasing out procedure of the PlayBook as well as the Evo View 4G has already started in between.
