A few months back TELUS CEO Darren Entwistle stated he was “bullish on the PlayBook” and also noted the iPad is “not all things to all people”. Well, you can now bank on RIM’s tablet hitting TELUS locations incredibly soon. A message went out to TELUS SMB customers with the subject line of “TELUS-Blackberry event for Playbook!”. The event is happening on March 22nd where they’ll introduce to the PlayBook and other upcoming RIM product offerings this year. No other details are known about an exact launch date or pricing.

(Thanks tipster!)

    OK people start dogging RIM and praise the ipad2

  • Big 3

    Telus pricing…hmm lets guess…I’m guessing it’ll be on a 3 year contract!

    • And?

      and what would be preventing you from buying it outright?

  • Richard

    Oh sweet! will getting one ASAP from whoever has it first!

  • cody

    Only way they can get me to buy a tablet is if they get the HTC Flyer or an LG tablet.

  • sookster54

    I’ll be getting one but the pricing is what I’m worried about.

  • Nasir

    I second that I am very interested in this tablet and will be getting one as soon as I can. I think the pricing will come closer to the iPad and not the XOOM.

  • Moe

    From reports we know that at least one model will be under $500 and there is RIM has stated that the Playbook will have “competitive pricing” we have to see wait and see what RIM comes with
