RIM’s PlayBook Has a Price and a Date

RIM has finally announced the specifics on how much you’ll pay for its BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, and when you’ll be able to do so: It goes on sale April 19th for the familiar-sounding prices of $499 (16GB), $599 (32GB), and $699 (64GB). The 7″, businessy tablet is the single most intriguing iPad alternative, simply because it’s not that much like an iPad; it’s looked good in demos for months, and it’s be intriguing to see just how close it comes to living up to its hype and promise, both of which are considerable.

    The only way this is going to be succesful is if they can make a davlik wrapper that can run android apps as has been rumored. Esentially turning this into an android tablet with a different and to some better interface.
