So Far U.S. Carriers Rejecting the PlayBook
Posted: 21-Apr-2011 [Source: MobileTechNews]

[This morning WSJ reports that Verizon is still undecided about offering the Playbook. AT&T had earlier decided not to offer the PlayBook refusing to allow activation of its "bridge" software.]

By Jean Whitinger, MobileTechNews -- The PlayBook launched in the U.S. and Canada earlier this week and as yet no U.S. carriers have agreed to offer RIM's first tablet. It is currently available through on-line vendors identified on the RIM web site as well as retail outlets including BestBuy, OfficMax, Office Depot, Staples, and Radio Shack.

The PlayBook has been criticized for not offering an e-mail program and no wireless network connectivity. Customers can use a program knows as BlackBerry Bridge to sync their PlayBook with their BlackBerry in order to read e-mail as well as acces their calendar and contacts database.

However, thus far AT&T is the only U.S. carrier that has refused to release the BlackBerry Bridge software. AT&T spokesperson, Mark Siegel released an email stating "We’ve only just received the app for testing, and we want to make sure it will deliver a quality experience before we make it available to our customers.”
