∞ Sprint says no to the PlayBook

Greg Bensinger at WSJ.com:

The decision means the device hasn’t yet found any support from the three largest U.S. wireless carriers, which includes AT&T and Verizon Wireless. Without their backing, RIM will have to bear the burden of sales and marketing support for the device, as well as application development.In contrast, Apple’s market-dominating iPad is advertised and supported by both AT&T and Verizon Wireless, and the tablet is displayed prominently in stores.

And that’s what happens when you rush a product to market without the features that people want. Nobody will touch it.
