National mobile carrier Vodafone has released a limited amount of information about how it will price Research in Motion's BlackBerry PlayBook, noting the device will be available bundled on a single monthly plan with the BlackBerry Bold 9780 handset and will launch next week on June 29.
RIM is not done with the PlayBook. The company just announced a major update for its tablet. The software update will be available later today for the WiFi PlayBook and brings a host of significant improvements.
Research in Motion's BlackBerry PlayBook tablet will launch through all of Australia's major mobile carriers as well as retailer Harvey Norman in three different models from 20 June, the Canadian company said today, with recommended retail prices starting at $579.
If you were looking to buy a BlackBerry Playbook, but were holding out for an official keyboard attachment, your wait is now over. RIM has launched the BlackBerry PlayBook Mini Keyboard, complete with touchpad. But is this what consumers have been clamoring for? Oh, RIM …

Lazaridis was joined on stage by the company's founder, Dan Dodge, who said that "QNX is going to enable things that you have never seen before," and added that the PlayBook would be "an incredible gaming platform for publishers and the players".
