BlackBerry PlayBook may hit Sprint on June 5th for $499

Sprint’s public sector marketing director, Gerald Evans, recently posted a message on his personal blog noting that Sprint planned to launch the Wi-Fi version of the BlackBerry PlayBook on June 5th for $499. The post has since been pulled, so it’s unclear if the tablet will make its debut on Sunday, but we suspect it was a slip on Evans’ part and that the launch is likely to take place on that date. Sprint has also announced that it will offer a 4G WiMAX version of the tablet sometime this summer; there’s still no official word on a launch date or price for that model, however. More →

HTC HD7S headed to AT&T on June 5th for $200

Via its Facebook page, AT&T has announced that it will offer the HTC HD7S Windows Phone handset for $199.99 beginning on June 5th. The HD7S offers a 4.3-inch Super LCD display, a 1GHz processor, a 5-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, and more. It was originally announced on March 21, and we had a chance to get up close and personal with it during CTIA. Given its launch date, we assume it will be packed with Microsoft’s latest software update, which we’re sure we’ll hear more about on May 24th. More →
