BlackBerry PlayBook Rumored to be Heading for Verizon Too

February 9, 2011, By Leo Xavier

Though we heard RIM officially announcing 4G BlackBerry PlayBook heading for the Sprint at CES 2011 a month back, the emerging reports now hint that US customers can get their hands on the BB PlayBook on Verizon network also.

We haven’t got any official confirmation from RIM or Verizon so far regarding this. But we have got information about a site designed to run a beta testing registration for BlackBerry PlayBook on Verizon.

Though it seems the registration is closed now, reporters who contacted the support team of the site got the response that the program is an exclusive initiative from Verizon and that the participation is by invitation only.

Though there is no official confirmation from RIM or Verizon about the existence of such a website, the legal documents contained in the site are in the name of the Verizon and RIM.

Moreover, the domain is owned by Marketing Wrecks who have RIM and Verizon in their client list.

The machine included in the beta program features 1 GHz dual-core processor and 1 GB RAM. Stuffed with a 7 inch capacitive screen with multi-touch capability, it has a 3 MP front-facing cam and a 5 MP rear cam.

We are yet to make any confirmation if Verizon will start selling 4G BB PlayBook anytime soon, but with the beta program it seems US customers may get a chance to try BB PlayBook on more than one network in the future.
