We've been wonering when Sprint was going to release the BlackBerry PlayBook and now we know it'll be June 5, thanks to Sprints Market Director Gerald Evans. No, the announcement didn't come from Sprint directly -- rather, it was posted to his personal blog where he announced:
The much anticipated BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet with Wi-Fi® connectivity and 16 GB of storage will go on sale in all Sprint direct ship sales channels, including Sprint Stores, Business Sales, www.sprint.com and Telesales (1-800-SPRINT1) on Sunday, June 5, for $499.99 (plus tax).
Not a whole lot more can be said there, except -- I guess we'll have to wait around for an official announcement from RIM and/or Sprint. We still don't have an date for the 4G version as of yet but, "summer" is still on target.
