Rumors on possible launch dates for the BlackBerry PlayBook keep pouring in. The latest round of rumors are aimed at Sears Canada, Best Buy Canada, Future Shop, and Staples USA. The rumors are defentatly indicating a launch between April 10-23. So lets round up all these rumors:
Sears Canada has sent our an email to affiliates letting them know that the PlayBook is expected to ship April 10th. Pre-orders will start today (March 12th). Nothing else has been updated on their website, it only says the PlayBook is coming soon. You can see it here. [via BGR]
Best Buy Canada hasn’t said much about the PlayBook, except when asked on their forums about a launch date. A BestBuy forums manager replied saying last they heard was “April 22, 2011″. You can follow the discussion here.
Future Shop (who is owned by Best Buy) hasn’t said much about the PlayBook launch, but a member over at CrackBerry posted pictures of what appears to be a PlayBook display. No word when its suppose to go on display. [see picture here]
Staples USA is expected to launch the PlayBook shortly. While nothing is confirmed, Staples does have a PlayBook pedestal that is set to go on display April 17th. Training for the PlayBook is also under way. Finally CrackBerry got a hold of some signage which shows the PlayBook launches in 33 days. That will put the launch around April 17th. [via CB]
So RIM I dare say its your turn to let us know when and where the PlayBook will be available. Stay tuned for more details when we find them.
