The BlackBerry PlayBook is finally available to buy in the US following its initial announcement seven months ago.
The 7-inch, 16GB, Wi-Fi-only PlayBook costs $500 (£306.81) and is available to buy directly from Research In Motion's (RIM) website or from selected retailers, including Best Buy and Staples.
Doubling storage to 32GB takes the price to $599, while taking it to the maximum 64GBs of storage makes the total cost $699. 3G and 4G versions of the tablet are expected to launch later in the year.
Similarly, RIM's first tablet is not yet available in the UK; with no firm release date in sight. In January, Alex Kinsella, senior product manager at RIM, told ZDNet UK that a UK release would closely follow the US launch.
"We haven't given out any timing... You can draw conclusions that the UK is an important market for us; things tend to come out quite soon in the UK," Kinsella said.
