RIM Joins With Sprint on Tablet - WSJ.com

Think different…

Research in Motion Ltd. is joining with Sprint Nextel Corp. to enter the increasingly crowded tablet computing market.

RIM's Playbook tablet computer will run on Sprint's fast wireless 4G technology and be sold through the third largest wireless carrier in the U.S.

However, the Sprint version of the tablet won't be available until the summer, and the companies have yet to reveal the price of the product. In addition, the Playbook won't run a significant number of the applications built for RIM's popular BlackBerry smartphone as it is built on a new operating system that RIM acquired through an acquisition last year.
