BlackBerry PlayBook release date February 2011?
TSTT out PlayBook release date
The upcoming tablet device from Canadian tech giant Research in Motion, the BlackBerry PlayBook has seemingly had its launch date outed by a relative unknown network provider as Telecommunication Services of Trinidad & Tobago (TSTT) peg the tablet with a February 2011 arrival.
Since its official unveiling back in September the eventual launch date of the impressively speced BlackBerry PlayBook has been a hot topic of discussion with a first quarter 2011 arrival hotly tipped as the favourite.
TSTT, which provides a reported 60,000 BlackBerry users has joined DropBox and Best Buy as companies claiming they will stock the 7-inch multitouch display touting BlackBerry Playbook when it finally hits stores.
Looking to challenge the Samsung Galaxy Tab and Apple iPad for tablet supremacy, the PlayBook will use BlackBerry handsets as a modem to access the internet and will play host to a 1GHz dual-core processor, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a second 3-megapixel front-facing camera. Unlike many of the upcoming tablet arrivals, however, RIM’s BlackBerry offering will forgo Google’s Android operating system instead opting for propriety QNX software.
