RIM to Discontinue Wi-Fi BlackBerry PlayBook?

In a note to investors Monday afternoon, RBC Capital Markets Managing Director Mike Abramsky reiterated OTR Global’s report that Research In Motion is possibly planning to stop production of the BlackBerry PlayBook’s Wi-Fi model. The Wi-Fi version of RIM’s tablet is the only version Research In Motion currently manufacturers. The reasons for the discontinuation of the Wi-Fi edition, Abramsky states could be related to a pullback in production including aligning channel inventory with slower than expected sellthrough in addition to RIM focusing on upcoming cellularlyآ–connected PlayBook versions.
