You can get your PlayBook on April 19, at tons and tons of retail outlets and cellular providers. No, there won’t be a 3G or 4G version just yet, but it looks like carriers are prepping for that situation in the future. Android apps? Confirmed. RIM let us know yesterday that they’re going to make it super easy for Android developers to port their apps to the PlayBook. That should help ease some concerns over the lack of apps on the PlayBook. BlackBerry 6.1 is coming, and no one is more excited than RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie. He has some strong words for the new OS. Can it possibly match his hype? And RIM reported on its 2010 fiscal year. They did pretty well, I’d say.
