Although we don't have an exact, official release date for the BlackBerry PlayBook just yet, that doesn't mean we have to wait for the accessories!

Targus has announced that it will be joining the "Built for BlackBerry" program, which basically means its cases and accessories are designed specifically for RIM products. But the new cases today concern the PlayBook tablet.

The flagship of the new cases is the Zierra case. This leather-bound accessory has room for business and/or credit cards, pens and a few other small necessities. Available in either black with a burgundy interior or in red with a brown interior, the Zierra case will retail for $54.99.

If you're looking for something a tad cheaper, the Truss case (pictured above) doubles as a hands-free stand and a carrying case. There are a lot of choices when it comes to the exterior, especially colors. The Truss will be available in black with either a black or blue interior as well as brown with an orange interior. Buyers can also opt for Truss in nylon for $34.99 or with in leather for $44.99.
