According to BGR, the BlackBerry PlayBook is pushed to launch on April 10th in retail channels. It is a bit disappointed, since we are too impatient to wait the release of BlackBerry PlayBook, and we are looking forward to getting our hands on the PlayBook. Currently, the release date also cannot be confirmed, since RIM has not officially announced it. What do you think?
RIM has posted a new BlackBerry PlayBook video to show us how BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet is designed with enterprise environments in mind and built for business professionals. From the video, it seems that the BlackBerry PlayBook is the most suitable tablet for business use. I am looking forward to the official release of PlayBook and want to see if it will work as this video claims!
Before getting started with application signing on the BlackBerry Tablet OS, be sure you have installed the most recent version of either the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe® AIR®, or the BlackBerry® WebWorks™ SDK for BlackBerry Tablet OS. You can download the latest version of either SDK from the BlackBerry Tablet OS Application Development site.

At Mobile World Congress 2011, RIM has showed us a video to demonstrate the great feature of the new BlackBerry PlayBook ‘Scrapbook’ App built by The Astonishing Tribe. This fun App is shows off the performance of the BlackBerry PlayBook platform and demonstrates the advanced four-finger multi-touch controls and rich graphics in the above video.
