Rumor: 10-inch BlackBerry PlayBook landing this Fall

Less than a month after the release of RIM's PlayBook, rumors have emerged that the company is already working on a larger version of the tablet.

RIM released the PlayBook in April, but that isn't stopping the company from already preparing a follow up to the device.

Speaking to BGR, sources say that a new version of the tablet will arrive later this year. RIM's new device, however, won't replace its 7-inch predecessor. Instead, RIM will offer the larger PlayBook as an alternative to its diminutive cousin.  We've seen this pattern before with Samsung's Galaxy Tab,  which comes in 7, 8.9 and 10.1-inch varieties.

The move makes sense for RIM. Size comparisons between the PlayBook and iPad usually note that, while the PlayBook's size makes it more portable than the iPad, the device's small screen makes watching videos for extended periods difficult. A larger tablet would effectively solve that problem.

Let's just hope that RIM ships a completed product this time around.
