It looks like the BlackBerry PlayBook is coming to SaskTel too! SaskTel authorized retailer Jump.ca has put up a pre-registration page for the upcoming tablet. No word on an actual release date or pricing yet but this is very exciting news for them! The PlayBook is rumoured to be released in Canada by the second week of April for around the $500 mark.

Quick specs on the “The world’s 1st professional tablet” have it coming with a 7-inch LCD display, 1GHz Dual Core Symmetrical Multiprocessor with 1GB RAM, Out of the box support for BES, Front and rear cameras, full web experience and WiFi.

    That would be a good price.

    Bravo for being creative with this new UI.

    Unfortunately a 10″ screen would have been much more useful to enjoy it on.

    I still think 7″ is the right size for these tablets. If i need a 10″ screen I will buy a 10″ netbook for half the price of an iPad.

      Its actually tough to compare models that are 7″ vs 10″ as they seem to really be for different types of use. 7″ is much more portable when you see it in person.

      10″ netbook? That’s been the argument for a while. But seems pretty evident that netbooks are not close to being as enjoyable as tablets are.

    I’ll wait for the 10″ but I have a feeling it’ll take a reaaally long time for RIM to release it. I’m stuck between the two!!

  • TheTigerTek

    I like the 7″ screen… its really portable and it’s actually comfortable to hold on to. Please RIM your a Canadian company don’t pull an Apple by releasing the Playbook two weeks after the US launch.

    • Mike

      Don’t worry. Unlike Apple they announce it one year and then release it the next.

    Good Price and cheaper than the Moto Xoom!
    But it’s hard to compare due to different OS’s and difference in some of the specs.
