RIM has been having very public issues lately, and it seems this has steamrolled into their tablet, PlayBook, getting one of its models discontinued. Research in Motion have cut the 16GB model, as it will be removed from inventory lists after the current stock held by retailer's is gone.

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.
