BlackBerry Playbook Launching June 20, Starts At $579
 src=RIM’s seven-inch competitor to the iPhone has finally received Aussie release information. If you like your tablets with enterprise-grade security, then you’ll want to read below.

The tablet will be available in six different variations: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB Wi-Fi only models, which will be sold through Harvey Norman; and 16GB, 32GB and 64GB 3G models, which will be sold through Telstra, Optus and Vodafone later this month.

The price for the 16GB Wi-Fi model is $579, with pricing for the 3G versions to be announced closer to launch. The other Wi-Fi models follow the same pricing as the iPad, with $689 for the 32GB and $799 for the 64GB.

It’s a gorgeous little device with some really clever multitasking. It just needs a good selection of app support – including dedicated email apps on the device – before it really stands a chance.
