We 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.
