Verizon evaluating whether to distribute PlayBook
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Verizon Wireless is still evaluating whether or not it will distribute the PlayBook tablet computer from Research In Motion, the biggest U.S. mobile operator said on Wednesday.
While BlackBerry maker RIM had said it expected Verizon Wireless to be one of its distribution partners for PlayBook, the company said it has yet to make a decision.
"We're still evaluating the BlackBerry Playbook and have not made a determination as to whether we're going to distribute it," Verizon Wireless Spokeswoman Brenda Raney said.
The comment came the day after PlayBook launched at North American electronics retailers. Verizon Wireless is a venture of Verizon Communications Inc and Vodafone Group Plc.
