RIM has recently backed down from their Q1 tentative launch date to a Q1-ish March/April date for the BlackBerry PlayBook. Now we are hearing rumors from the BoyGenius that the PlayBook will hit retail locations on April 10th. According to their sources the PlayBook OS will be going to “Gold Master” status on March 31st but when you boot the device the first time it will perform a upgrade to a newer OS. Not that big of a deal but I wish the launch was sooner rather than later.
On a side note I am really curious to see how RIM does OS upgrades on the PlayBook. The QNX real time OS is known for being able to totally upgrade the OS without a reboot. Now that would be sweet!
