Although the BlackBerry PlayBook hasnít been received too well in North America, Research in Motion is plugging away at an global launch this summer.
An exact timeline hasnít been published, but RIM is bringing its tablet to the following 16 markets in the next 30 days: United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong, Australia, Venezuela, Spain, Germany, United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Mexico, France, Italy, India, Indonesia and Colombia.
Pricing will likely vary by market and carrier if RIM intends to roll out the 4G editions as well when theyíre finally ready. RIM recently brought the Wi-Fi-only edition of the PlayBook in the U.S. to Sprint, and the 4G-enabled copies are expected to be rolled out this summer.
