It has been pretty quiet on the release date of the BlackBerry PlayBook for Sprint. We did here it was delayed for various reasons, but now it looks to soon be releasing. According to Sprint’s Market Director, Gerald Evans, the PlayBook (WiFi-only) will be released June 5th. This wasn’t reported officially by Sprint, but by Evans’ personal blog.
The much anticipated BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet with Wi-Fi® connectivity and 16 GB of storage will go on sale in all Sprint direct ship sales channels, including Sprint Stores, Business Sales, www.sprint.com and Telesales (1-800-SPRINT1) on Sunday, June 5, for $499.99 (plus tax).
Only a few days away, guess we’ll know soon enough if this is true or not. If so, perhaps we’ll see an official announcement soon. There has yet to be an announced date for the 4G WiMax PlayBook, but we hope it’s still on target for this summer.
