Blackberry Playbook Release Date and Pricing Details

The Blackberry Playbook, RIM's first tablet, has been given a release date as well as pricing details.  The Playbook is to release in the US and Canada on April 19th 2011.  The UK release date for the Playbook has been set at April to June by RIM but as our post on 21st March stated, some Three UK branded slides had shown up displaying a UK release date of June.

Pricing for the Playbook has it level with Apples popular iPad 2 - around $499, $599, $699 for the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions respectively.  UK pricing is unknown and any USD to GBP conversion will most likely be unrealistic, a more likely accurate conversion would be to take to US prices and drop the dollar symbol for a pound symbol.
