Jim Balsillie might be on the outs, but it looks like his once boastful pet-project — a BlackBerry PlayBook with integrated cellular wireless — is finally coming to fruition.

That also lines up nicely with a previously leaked roadmap, promising a summer arrival. Will the mythical 4G-wielding PlayBook ever make it to market? Or like it’s WiMax brother, will it never be given the chance? While you ponder that, more pics await at the source.
