When will the PlayBook come out? We heard first quarter, and that still appears to be accurate. We also heard delay, which kind of jibes with the rumored February release date we heard. It looks like last week of March is the answer, though that can change between now and then. It also looks like $499.99, which fits with RIM’s description of less than $500. Android apps? Please! Rumor is that RIM is working on a solution that would allow Android apps to run on the PlayBook. It won’t be available when the device first drops, but we should see it by mid-year. That will make the device even better.
