BlackBerry PlayBook and the Storm 3 coming to T-Mobile?

BlackBerry PlayBook and the Storm 3 coming to T-Mobile?
This is an absolutely unconfirmed rumour, but it's still worth mentioning that according to various inside sources, two much-anticipated BlackBerry devices - the PlayBook and the Storm 3 - will grace T-Mobile shelves.

According to these sources, RIM held a large number of events for retail representatives across the USA, including with T-Mobile ones. It's reported that it has become clear during these events that both the BlackBerry PlayBook and the BlackBerry Storm 3 are coming to Big Magenta customers at some point in the future.

Moreover, it's said that one of these devices - our bet is the BlackBerry PlayBook, since the BlackBerry Storm 3's expected release date is in Q3 of 2011 - is scheduled to join the T-Mobile ranks very soon.

Until we have more info, we will treat this report as a speculation, but surely it sounds exciting for T-Mo customers. The pic below (showing the BB PlayBook) is said to be taken during a T-Mobile - RIM meeting.

@ luis why u mad?? I have t-mobile and my brother has sprint and i really wish i cud be on sprint cuz t-mobile coverage and reception suck inside buildings i dont get service while sprint does . Its frustating. T-mobile may have better phones and a faster network but its crap. Trust me i kno .

??? sorry but, doesnt it depend on where you live? the coverage in my area is great :) not that many tall buildings. my "4g"(HSPA+) speeds reach 5 mbits/ps and i am happy with that plus i hardly use my voice minutes so thats a whatever why do i dislike the G2, because it has 800mhz processor and small screen -__-.

I love T-mobile, Why are people hating on it? It's probably location, I get great T-mobile Coverage on my Samsung Galaxy S 4G :)
