Canadian government purchasing 500 BlackBerry Playbooks
The Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade has a requirement to procure 500 RIM's "Playbook" tablets with the option to procure an additional 500 units. It is proposed to issue a contract to Research In Motion (RIM) or its designated reseller.
It's always nice to see a bit of positive news for Research In Motion
and the BlackBerry PlayBook
, since the majority of it these days seems to be all doom and gloom. While 500 or 1000 PlayBooks isn't a huge number, it's still a step in the right direction.
