Will the BlackBerry PlayBook Start Shipping in March?!

December 17, 2010 | By | 1 Comment

I was really hoping we would see the BlackBerry PlayBook launch in January or February of next year, but it looks like it won’t be coming until at least March. During RIM’s Q3 earnings call a RIM rep may have slipped up on a rough launch date for the PlayBook, and its not what we expected. The rep on the call said “There are no PlayBook revenues included in our Q4 guidance, and we expect the first revenue impact from PlayBook will be in RIM’s first quarter,”. Interesting enough RIM’s first fiscal quarter doesn’t actually starting until March 2011, so could that really mean we won’t see the BlackBerry PlayBook until March? or will it come early or later? Who knows.

    Um some facts for the ending of Q4 for RIM.

    Fiscal 2011
    Q1 Quarter End: May 29, 2010 Reporting Date: June 24, 2010
    Q2 Quarter End: August 28, 2010 Reporting Date: September 16, 2010
    Q3 Quarter End: November 27, 2010 Reporting Date: December 16, 2010
    Q4 Quarter End: February 26, 2011 Reporting Date: March 24, 2011

    End date is Feb. 26th 2011 not March. Also RIM may NOT have projected any earnings due to early reduced price volume shipments for partners the first quarter or any other reason; which is fine. The company has LOTS of cash on hand their not going out of business in 3mths.
