  • Rumor: RIM to discontinue WiFi PlayBook?


    We all love rumors. We all love knowing little secrets that have been possibly leaked from within a company that reveal certain goals, devices, or direction of a company. With rumors though, readers need to be cautious as to not buy into what is said too much because as with many things in business, plans change quickly. What was certain one day, might not be so certain the next.

    With all this in my mind, BGR is reporting that according to an OTR Global report, RIM will be discontinuing the WiFi enabled BlackBerry PlayBook. Jonathan Geller, Mr. Boy Genius, is a known BlackBerry-hating, Apple fanboy and any time a negative BlackBerry rumor comes out, he makes it sound like it's pretty much fact. Could this happen? Yes, of course. Will this happen? Highly doubtful. It is simply a rumor.

    While RIM has had some success with the PlayBook, the lack of native email, BBM; etc has been an arguing point for many that wish to jump negatively on BlackBerry's tablet. By ceasing production of this type of PlayBook, RIM would almost be adding insult to injury for all those of us that have bought one already. That's not to say RIM would cut support for current WiFi enabled PlayBooks, but it would still not sit right with investors and future purchasers of PlayBooks.

    Obviously the more information we get, we will be sure to pass it on but for now all PlayBook owners and lovers can rest assured RIM is working hard to provide the best tablet experience for us.
