I don't know what this means for RIM's Playbook plans for future grades and such but in the short-term, this piece of news out of WSJ ain't good.
Sprint has decided against going ahead with a WiMax version of the Playbook. I would have thought that since the Playbook is the only tablet for use by the US government, RIM's tablet would soon have a lot of wind on its back.
And we know nothing so far about what plans RIM has for its future tablet plans. My recommendation is that it focuses the the superphones first. Those are already pretty late as it is.
