If rumors are to be believed, then the wait for the BlackBerry PlayBook will soon be over.
According to "multiple sources" reporting into Boy Genius Report, RIM's tablet entry will launch on April 10, closely following the BlackBerry Tablet OS hitting Gold Master status on March 31. It has already been reported that the PlayBook would launch in April for $499.99, so this would fall in line with that story. There is also speculation that 4G data service will be provided by Verizon Wireless.
We'll find out later today whether or not the PlayBook will actually beat a particular Apple-made tablet to store shelves. It's already fallen behind the Motorola Xoom.
