Speaking of tablets emerging this year, the BlackBerry PlayBook is certainly on the docket, and it might be heading to multiple carriers.

RIM's 4G tablet was already confirmed for Sprint at CES 2011, but a mysterious page for a beta program registration page has been uncovered. Most interestingly, there is a big Verizon logo in the corner. If it is really (which it sure looks like it is, then both RIM and Verizon kept this very hush, hush considering registration is already closed.

How excited are you for the PlayBook to be released?
