3G version / release date

Does anyone know if there is a Playbook 3G version under development or even a planned release date/timeframe yet. I still can't understand that BB hasn't launched a version with 3G yet. Even if teethering with a BB works somewhat ok, there is nothing like a built in 3G for a tablet.

Re: 3G version / release date

Actually I thought the only planned/announced one was for LTE, not 3G.

Did I miss the memo? Smiley Happy
