RIM Asks FCC to Hold Back PlayBook Approval Details Until Launch

FCC request BlackBerry PalyBook

If you needed any more proof that RIM originally planned on launching the PlayBook in March this should clinch it.

  3. If it has finally been approved we should be able to find out the details. I wonder why they were holding back?

  4. It has to be more surprises! At least I hope!!
