BlackBerry PlayBook earns FCC's approval, to come in April
The BlackBerry PlayBook received its FCC filing earlier today, and this practically reiterates what we have been hearing for quite some time now - that the device is scheduled to appear in early April.

Mind that RIM requested a short-term confidentiality treatment, which expires on March 31 - according to it, the tablet's external photos, test setup photos, user manual and internal photos are not to be disclosed to the general public prior to the above mentioned date.

The FCC files state this is "in order to ensure sensitive business information remains confidential until the actual marketing of the device".

All of this fits nicely with the rumoured April 10 release date of the BlackBerry Playbook, so one thing is certain - we're getting nearer.

Now that the Motorola XOOM and the iPad 2 are already launched, do you plan to buy the first RIM tablet?

So my options are, 2 rushed out products and a new OS.
The other 2 can sell all they want, I'm trying something new with the Playbook.

I am not a big fan of Blackberry, but I would really like to try a new tablet OS. So im leaning more towards the Playbook or a WebOS tablet. Any recommendations?

Both are great. WebOS is an interface I always thought as ideal for tablets, and the Playbook's QNX is tailored for tablets, I think the interface for it is better than Honeycomb whcih seems to mostly be a fancied up Android.
