More Dates Leak Out for the PlayBook Launch Date from Sears and Staples

5518451900_ef8c45bf81_bWe have been hearing rumors that the PlayBook is set to launch around April 10 which is still Q1 if you go by RIM’s quarterly cycles.  Will posted on his blog an affiliate e-mail sent from Sears Canada stating that customers can begin ordering their PlayBook starting tomorrow Saturday 12th with a shipping date of April 10. This falls right along the rumored dates that we had reported on before.

This is the first we have heard of sears carrying the PlayBook and the first to state officially they are carrying the device. So if you live in Canada lit looks like you will be able to get the PlayBook fairly soon. No price are stated on the e-mail but I have a feeling we will be hearing more about this over the weekend.


Another retailer that we seen leaked training documents about the PlayBook is from Staples and it looks  like they will probably be launching the device a few days later with a date on an demo display of 4/17. Either way it is good to see more promising dates for the actual release date of the PlayBook. I am still not over the fact that RIM will launch over a month later than Apple’s iPad.

I know some of our lucky readers will be getting a free PlayBook and don’t forget to follow the instructions there is still time to win one for this month.

  1. no idea on price yet eh ?

  2. If you can pre-order it I would think they’d have a price listed. We’ll have to check the Sears site and see tomorrow.

  3. Chestr, we hope it beats the iPad2 😀

  4. Well, for those poor souls who order their iPad 2 today… with the 3 week shipping.. April 10 isn’t that far out. lol

    Not gonna stand around and wait for the iPad 2. Nickels, dimes & quarters being gather for a Playbook. 🙂

  5. Fake. It will get announced by RIM when it gets shipped. Do they spell releasing with an additional “a” in Canada?

  6. Sears is going to be selling the playbook?…not even sure how I feel about that.

    “Wow, what a productive shopping trip today. Bought some tools, some bedding, some kitchenware…oh and one of those Playbook things.” lol

    • I agree, Sears seems like a strange place for RIM to pick as a sales channel. Who are they targeting at Sears? How many people go there for the latest and greatest tech toys? A sale on sheets maybe, but a high-end enterprise tablet? It makes zero sense…

  7. Ah that was too bad… I was reallly hoping it would be launched in this month… 🙁

  8. Didn’t happen….

  9. Finally put those coupons from Sears to good use..

  10. Good one BatraD!
    I wonder if they will add a promotion that is not combinable to the sale though.

  11. I wanna see prices

  12. Staples is preordering and the Playbook is without contract. Will tether with many Blackberry’s via bluetooth and other networks via wifi. You can use your data plan to surf anywhere you have service. Very cool!
