WIll Sprint Charge for BlackBerry PlayBook Tethering??

Updated PB Sprint Info

The BlackBerry PlayBook is scheduled to launch in just under 13 days, and both RIM and the mobile carriers have been pretty quiet about additional charges for tethering. CrackBerry just received an interesting tip attached with a picture that shows Sprint might actually be planning to charge for tethering on the BlackBerry Wi-Fi tablet. The sign shows that Sprint will be carrying the Wi-Fi only PlayBook in stores on PlayBook launch day, April 19th, and that tethering for the PlayBook will be charged at $29.99 per month. This charge will allow users to share their existing data plan with their PlayBook for web browsing access on the go. This is the first we’ve heard of any carriers charging for tethering on the PlayBook, and we REALLY hope that others do not follow. Check out another shot of the poster below…
