A RIM spokesperson said that the company:

 

Remains committed to the tablet space and the 32GB and 64GB models of the BlackBerry PlayBook continue to be available from our distributors and retailers around the world.

 

RIM's tablet has been having issues, not getting even close to Apple's iPad in terms of numbers. For every PlayBook, 19 iPads are shipped. That must hurt, real bad.
