Sears now taking pre-orders for the BlackBerry PlayBook

Although one of the emails that sparked off the whole pre-order launch madness didn't really pan out as stated, that doesn't mean it wasn't true in one way or another. Sears certainly had the best intentions when they sent out their previous BlackBerry PlayBook emails -- they just so happened to get the date wrong. Either way, folks looking to scoop up a BlackBerry PlayBook can now hop on over to the Sears Canada website and place your pre-order. No price difference from any other retailer but if you're looking to grab one with some ease, something tells me Sears will be the way to go.

Hi ‘denorro,’

Alex from RIM here. Our first BlackBerry PlayBook is a Wi-Fi model – it’s currently available for pre-order and will be in stores on April 19th.
Three additional 4G PlayBook models will make their debut later this year:

- BlackBerry 4G PlayBook with Wi-Fi + WiMax: this summer via Sprint
- BlackBerry 4G PlayBook with Wi-Fi + LTE: second half of 2011
- BlackBerry 4G PlayBook with Wi-Fi + HSPA+: second half of 2011

If you have a few minutes, catch this video to learn about the first PlayBook:
