RIM Recalls Nearly 1,000 Faulty BlackBerry PlayBooks ➝

Sean Hollister reporting for Engadget:

We found the BlackBerry PlayBook to be a pretty solid piece of hardware, but it seems there was a problem batch — an inside source tells us that nearly 1,000 faulty tablets were shipped to Staples, and now they’re being recalled.

A RIM spokesman has told CrackBerry that the reason for a recall is that some BlackBerry PlayBooks sold were “unable to properly load software upon initial set-up.”
