*UPDATE* - As it turns out, the boxes contain a security casing for the BlackBerry PlayBook 4G. Rogers will have live units in stores for people to try out and this will serve as theft prevention. - Thanks, Alberto!
According to MobileSyrup, some Rogers stores are receiving some cryptic shipments this week. Boxes are arriving at some locations with the label PlayBook Security. Accompanying the shipments is a internal memo for employees stating just what to do with the mystery box.
Select stores received a box yesterday labeled "PLAYBOOK SECURITY". Please store this box safely in your back room until further notice. Replacement security will not be shipped to stores that misplace the kit so please make sure it's in a safe place.
This very well cool be something geared toward the release of the 4G LTE PlayBook we've heard so much about lately, but then again, it could also not have anything to do with the 4G PlayBook specifically at all :-)
