Keep taking the tablets

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Research in Motion's BlackBerry PlayBook may not have a UK release date as yet, but several retailers have announced they will be selling the device when it does become available.

Carphone Warehouse, Phones4U, Currys, PC World and Best Buy have all confirmed their involvement, although failed to divulge any further info with regards dates or pricing.

RIM PlayBook

The 7in tablet launched in the US this week which features RIM's BlackBerry Tablet OS based on QNX Technologies that the company acquired a year ago.

Although it is possible to port Android apps to the device, reviewers have been underwhelmed by RIM's software offerings, in particular, the Playbook's lack of e-mail and BB Messenger. Not so long ago, the company claimed that the PlayBook would "shame the you know what". Well, the time has come and you'll be able to judge for yourselves soon enough.

The BlackBerry PlayBook will be on these shores before long and we'll let you know as we hear more. You can pre-register interest for further info at Carphone Warehouse or Phones4U. ®
