Earlier this year at CES 2011, RIM announced that Sprint would be getting a 4G BlackBerry PlayBook. However, no mention was made if Big Red would also get the PlayBook. A website called PlayBookWithoutLimits.com has surfaced, which apparently held registration for beta testing the BlackBerry PlayBook on Verizon Wireless. The pilot program has since been closed, but we contacted the creators of the page, who had this to say:
“Thank you for your interest in the program. Please note this is an exclusive program for Verizon enterprise customers and participation is by invitation only.”
As with most carriers, their premiere enterprise users get to test devices to see if they’d be interested in purchasing stock for their company. This is definitely a good sign that Verizon may potentially sell a 3G or 4G PlayBook in the future, but it is by no means confirmation. If Big Red does offer the PlayBook, would you pick one up?
