RIM said Tuesday that its seven-inch QNX-based Playbook tablet will start selling in 20,000 retail shops in North America on Tuesday April 19.
The 16GB model will go for $499, the 32GB for $599 and the 64GB for $699, same as the 9.7-inch iPad.
Both the Xoom and the Galaxy Tab, the other Apple wannabes, cost more than the iPad.
Best Buy, Staples, Office Depot, RadioShack, Sears Canada, Wal-Mart, Verizon Wireless, Sprint Nextel and AT&T will carry the thing, double the points-of-sale Apple has. Best Buy says it's already taking orders.
