BlackBerry PlayBook Recall: RIM Official Statement

Apparently there seems to be a problem with some of RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook tables, so much so that Research In Motion has issued a recall for about 1000 of the devices, and have issued an official statement as to why.

According to the guys over at Crackberry, the unofficial word via a Staples memo was that 900 BlackBerry PlayBook units were to be recalled by RIM, so they contacted Research In Motion to get to official low down.

Here their official statement…” RIM determined that approximately one thousand BlackBerry PlayBook tablets (16 GB) were shipped with an OS build that may result in the devices being unable to properly load software upon initial set-up.

The majority of the affected devices are still in the distribution channel and haven’t reached customers. RIM is working to replace the affected devices.

In the small number of cases where a customer received a PlayBook that is unable to properly load software upon initial set-up, they can contact RIM for assistance.”

So there you have it, not too much to worry about, so if you have a BlackBerry PlayBook we’d like to know if you are one of those who have had their tablet recalled or if you are experiencing the above problem.
