June 16th is BlackBerry PlayBook Day in the UK

The BlackBerry PlayBook will hit the UK marketplace next Thursday (16th June) with prices starting at £399 for the 16GB version. You’ll be able to pick one up from Dixons, Currys, PC World, Carphone Warehouse, Insight UK and Phones4U.

There have been quite a few US/North American sales figures bandied about recently — I remember seeing a figure of 250,000 PlayBooks shipped in the first month. We’ll need to wait for RIM to confirm figures. Meanwhile I’m excited to see how the PlayBook will fare in the UK marketplace. I think it should get a good reception and I’m especially interested to see if some of the usual suspects (law firms, banks, financial houses) will take a close look.

Bring it on!
