RIM Denies Death of WiFi PlayBook
Research in Motion Monday denied a report that it was planning to discontinue production of the WiFi version of its BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.
In reaction to the report, from Boy Genius Report, a post on RIM's official Twitter account described the death of the WiFi PlayBook as "pure fiction." "No plans to discontinue. In fact WiFi PlayBook is launching in new countries every week," the post continued.
Citing an analyst with RBC Capital Markets, who in turn was referencing a OTR Global report, BGR had reported earlier Monday that RIM "is possibly planning to stop production of the current Wi-Fi BlackBerry PlayBook model," in favor of forthcoming 3G and 4G editions.
