This one just came into the tip line and it looks like things are gearing up on the BlackBerry PlayBook launch front. It's been over 6 months since the PlayBook was first announced and I'm sure RIM has been working overtime on this one and are ready to let loose for an evening. As we close in on launch day, RIM is holding an invite only event next Thursday in New York City to kick things off. Not much is noted in the invite but it's a safe bet there will be plenty of food, drink and PlayBook demos for those that are lucky enough to get an invite. At under two weeks until launch a party to celebrate the release is long overdue.
