RIM Exec Insists BlackBerry PlayBook Coming in March


With the latest rumors having the BlackBerry PlayBook launching on April 10th this is a breath of fresh air. The PocketLint team got a one on one interview with Stephen Bates, Head of UK Management Teat at RIM, that while the BlackBerry PlayBook will launch in the UK in early Q2. He also said that “Its end of Q1 for the US” and that “Europe is [email protected]… The UK will be one of the early ones.”

That US Q1 means we might still be seeing the BlackBerry PlayBook start rolling out in the US THIS MONTH. I doubt it will beat the iPad 2 and its March 11th launch date but still it could be closer than we think. I am really hoping Stephen Bates is on the money with this confirmation. Otherwise he is just a tease! via Electronista

  1. It takes a rumor to fish out the truth…I’m surprised they didn’t say anything about BBM for Android and iPhone. 😀

  2. Maybe rim will sell it head-on on march 11?

  3. would have been nice if it would have been on the 11th of march but i do not see that happening

  4. Ehhhh if they’re publishing this month I think it’s time for a mass of TV ads. SPAM US RIM!

  5. The back and forth continues. This looks like a credible source, but we’ll see.

    I wouldn’t mind an official announcement sometime before its released. 🙂

  6. Definitely a case of, “I’ll believe it when I see it.” Although they aren’t late by their earlier promise, they haven’t shown us anything else.

  7. If it takes two more months I’ll wait for RIM to get their act together and release a tablet without the rushes. This is they’re debut so they might as well do it right while getting it right.
    These rumours sound like more speculation and assumptions and it is growing tired. March has only begun so a March release is forseable for RIM, but I will say now is a good time to eat up some tv ad space with the PlayBook’s awesomeness!
