RIM Discontinue 16GB PlayBook, But Are Still "Committed To Tablets"

7 June 2012

Engadget:

RIM will no longer be making the 16 GB model of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. The 16 GB PlayBook will continue to be available for distributors and retailers while quantities last. We continue to remain committed to the tablet space and the 32 GB and 64 GB models of the BlackBerry PlayBook continue to be available from our distributors and retailers around the world.

RIM is just going to abandon an entire sector of the tablet market, but don’t fret – they are still committed to it.
