With the BlackBerry PlayBook marking RIM’s first real foray into direct retail I find their chosen partners to be a bit interesting. So far we know that Staples will be carrying the device and I have been hearing rumors that Best Buy will too. Now we have Sears putting up a Coming Soon page on their website for the device.
According to emails being sent to Sears Canada affiliates RIM will begin shipping the BlackBerry PlayBook on April 10th. That email also mentions that preordering would open up over the weekend but we have not seen anything beyond an email notification sign up form.
