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.

We can't be sure if this is an actual product testing program (like Google and the Chromebook), or maybe Verizon is just trying to gauge how much interest there is for the BlackBerry PlayBook among its customers.

How excited are you for the PlayBook to be released?

    As a Blackberry user through Verizon, I am looking forward to getting the Playbook. Hopefully it will be from Verizon.

    My dad would probably get one on Sprint, since he has a blackberry now.

  • Sim card support

    The lack of sim card support might be a big issue. Ipad supports sim card. Though, I can't wait to get mind! But no browsing without wifi.

      My Verizon Blackberry Bold 9600 has a sim card. Just because the Verizon and Sprint networks don't need it doesn't mean that the device won't support it.
