RIM dropped another piece of news on the BlackBerry PlayBook this morning. They announced the US and Canada launch date and pricing for the BlackBerry PlayBook together with Best Buy. Best Buy is “a preferred retailer for the BlackBerry PlayBook” and they have opened up preorders for all three models of the BlackBerry PlayBook in the US and Canada.
As we said before the BlackBerry PlayBooks featuring 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of storage are priced at $499, $599, and $699 respectively. It is scheduled to be available in stores on April 19th though you can preorder it now from the links below. RIM is wording their announcements stating that you can “Get it first” at Best Buy which more or less confirms the April 19th launch date. I am not sure what pushed the Q1 launch date well into Q2 territory but hopefully RIM has some more good surprises planned.
