For the first time since we heard the PlayBook was coming we have something close enough to confirming the release dates. Sears has been sending out details of the release and pre-order of the BlackBerry PlayBook to their affiliates. According to the image below, Sears will be accepting PlayBook pre-orders as of March 12 and they will be shipped out on April 10th.
Another image shows Staples getting ready for the PlayBook launch as well with the demo display of the tablet. The photo shows the date “04/17”, which is close enough to April 10th so we can conclude sometime around those dates the PlayBook will be released and shipped out to those who pre-ordered it. Pretty exciting news, it’s about time RIM releases the tablet all BlackBerry users have been waiting for! Hit the break for the images.
