US and UK release dates and pricing appear on the internet

Pricing leaked for Blackberry Tablet

The highly speculated pricing for the Blackberry PlayBook has now appeared online, according to Mobile Phone News.

RIM’s first tablet and iPad competitor is expected to be priced at $499 and will be available in April in both the US and the UK. In terms of UK pricing, £499 is likely due to extra costs involved UK distribution and VAT which is not included in the US price.

The PlayBook’s details have been known for a number of months, with a full unveiling occurring at CES 2011, but the business orientated tablet had yet to have a price point.

Despite being branded as the ‘PlayBook’, Blackberry is adamant that the device is “built for business” and “professional grade”.
