RIM denies report that it will stop production of Wi-Fi version of BlackBerry PlayBook
A story by OTR Global that RIM was about to discontinue the Wi-Fi version of the BlackBerry PlayBook blew up into a big story on Monday after RBC Capital Markets Managing Director Mike Abramsky picked up the story from OTR Global and used it in a report to clients. BGR then picked up the story, which RIM has vehemently denied.

Abramsky told clients that RIM had decided to stop producing the Wi-Fi variant of the 7 inch tablet partly due to weak sales. He said that it would also allow RIM to focus on the 4G model of the BlackBerry PlayBook and a new line of QNX flavored smartphones. Recently, we reported that RIM had pulled back on development of a tablet to concentrate on a QNX powered 4.3 inch Superphone.

In a tweet this afternoon, RIM called the earlier reports of the demise of the Wi-Fi PlayBook, "Pure Fiction". RIM added that this version of the tablet is launching in new countries just about every week.
