Research In Motion (RIM) has been very quiet about the release date for the BlackBerry Playbook, but a leaked image from the Office Depot database may have ruined their surprise. The image shows that the Playbook will be listed at $499 for the 16GB Wi-Fi Version, while the release date was a little less precise. Office Depot says the Playbook will be in stores by “Week 17” which actually translates to April 24th. More After the break

The pricing is pretty exciting because it marks the first worthy tablet to be under the $500 mark (other than the iPad). More after the break!The 16GB Wi-Fi only version is the same as the lowest priced iPad but the difference is the Playbook must be tied to a BlackBerry Smartphone to get all of its functionality. This would be easy to sell to current BlackBerry owners, but may be harder to sell to other consumers.
