BlackBerry PlayBook Recall

Over the weekend word started to spread that nearly 1000 16 GB BlackBerry PlayBook tablets sent to Staples retail outlets were recalled.  In a statement to CrackBerry RIM essentially says that the recall is not that big a deal:

RIM determined that approximately one thousand BlackBerry PlayBook tablets (16 GB) were shipped with an OS build that may result in the devices being unable to properly load software upon initial set-up.

The majority of the affected devices are still in the distribution channel and haven’t reached customers. RIM is working to replace the affected devices.

In the small number of cases where a customer received a PlayBook that is unable to properly load software upon initial set-up, they can contact RIM for assistance.

Only a few of the affected devices made their way into the hands of consumers.  If , however, you bought your BlackBerry PlayBook from Staple’s and you would like to know if you got recalled devices, check this post to see a a list of the affected device serial numbers…
