Wi-Fi version of BlackBerry PlayBook comes to Sprint on June 5th says executive
This Sunday, June 5th, Sprint will be launching the Wi-Fi version of the BlackBerry PlayBook according to a tweet sent from Sprint's Marketing Director, Gerald Evans. Evans' personal blog says the 16GB device will be priced at $499.99 and will be available at Sprint's retail stores, through telesales, Business sales and from Sprint's web site. Mr. Evans also wrote that Sprint will have the 4G version of the tablet later this year.

Just a few days ago, we reported that a Google search for Sprint PlayBook resulted in the discovery of a web address reading now.Sprint.com/PlayBook. We hoped that this was a clue that the WiMax enabled version of BlackBerry's tablet was about to be launched, but it looks like in retrospect, that it was a clue for the Wi-Fi version of the PlayBook that will apparently be launched by Sprint in 3 days. As for the 4G version of the BlackBerry PlayBook, it looks like it might be a few weeks at the least before that Gerald Evans gets to write about that model in his blog.
