CANADIAN MOBILE FIRM Research in Motion (RIM) is shipping its Blackberry Playbook 3G+ to the UK in time for Christmas, although we can't see it flying off the shelves.

That's because RIM has slapped the 3G enabled tablet with a whopping £420 price tag. Although that price doesn't sound all that bad when you consider that prices for Apple's 3G Ipad start from £499, over on the Currys website you can pick up a 64GB WiFi-only Blackberry Playbook for just £129.

If you're more concerned about 3G than grabbing a bargain, the latest Blackberry Playbook has decent specifications. As well as 3G connectivity, the device comes with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 32GB of internal storage. It also has the 7in 1024x600 display of the original Playbook and RIM's Blackberry Playbook QNX OS.

Other specifications include 1GB of RAM, a 5MP rear-facing camera with HD video, a 3MP front-facing camera, RIM's usual suite of business features and a 5300mAh battery.

The Blackberry Playbook 3G+ is listed on the Blackberry website, and is available from Insight and Misco UK. µ
