PCWorld, back in January:
Sprint Nextel will sell a WiMax version of the Research In
Motion PlayBook tablet beginning this summer, the companies
announced on Thursday at the International Consumer Electronics
Show in Las Vegas.
Fierce Wireless, this week:
Research in Motion’s PlayBook tablet suffered another blow as
Sprint Nextel announced it cancelled plans to sell a WiMAX-enabled
version of the device. […]
“It’s an interesting concept, it just hasn’t caught on with
business customers,” Paget Alves, president of Sprint’s business
markets group, told the Wall Street Journal in explaining Sprint’s
decision not to carry the PlayBook.
Where by “business customers”, Alves means “anyone”.
