It looks like Sprint is the first to grab the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, with the company adding it as its 18th 4G-capable device, and even slapping the 4G name on it--officially calling it the BlackBerry 4G PlayBook.

While we don't have pricing or true availability (summer time), we do have some specs to get us started. First off, it will run the new BlackBerry Tablet OS, and will be powered by a 1 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, sport Wi-Fi, Adobe Flash Player 10.1, Adobe Mobile AIR, and HTML5.

Are you excited to get your hands-on one? I saw some earlier demos and the thing definitely rocks and multitasks like a champ, but it will all depend on pricing. With built-in Wi-Fi and working on Sprint's 4G network. it's sure to scream, but will people invest in a tablet running a brand new OS?
