RIM PlayBook pricing leaks, starts at $399

RIM’s tablet, the PlayBook, will be hitting North America in the first quarter of next year and the rest of the world in the second quarter. And more and more information about this device keeps leaking week after week.

We’ve already found out that it will come in different internal memory sizes and that it will cost $500. And today’s rumor confirms both of those allegations.

It turns out that the PlayBook will come in three capacities, and prices will be different for each. The 8 GB version will cost $399, the 16 GB version will go for $499 and the 32 GB version will set you back $599.

Aside from the obvious differences in internal memory, the three models will be identical. Also, once again reiterated was the fact that the PlayBook will not have mobile data connectivity built-in. Meaning that unless you’ll tether it to a BlackBerry smartphone, you’re stuck with using only Wi-Fi for connecting to the internet. Versions of the tablet with integrated wireless carrier connectivity will not arrive sooner than 2012.

Take this information with a grain of salt if you so wish, although it certainly looks believable enough. And one way or the other, since we’re still quite far from the PlayBook’s availability, all the details will clearly get confirmed or debunked by the time that happens.
