RIM BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet Price, Release Date

RIM's PlayBook Tablet Slated For March, Will Cost Under $500

The tablet market is exploding since the huge success of Apple's iPad, with Samsung, HP, and even Dell creating tablets (or tablet-like devices) of their own. Now RIM is releasing more details about its seven-inch PlayBook tablet, specifically pricing and release date.

A WiFi-only version is expected to hit the market first with a sub-$500 price tag in March 2011. This should place the PlayBook squarely in the running to compete with the Galaxy Tab in terms of price and size. Since the PlayBook will be running the latest BlackBerry OS 6, it's sure to be a big draw for BlackBerry lovers everywhere.
