The device will be available at all Best Buy stores in the U.S. and Best Buy and Future Shop stores in Canada on April 19.

As "preferred retailers," both companies will begin accepting preorders for the PlayBook starting Tuesday.

today is thursday the 14th. this tuesday, launch day, is the 19th.

are they taking preorders starting on launch day?

or did ai mean to say they started taking preorders last tuesday (the 12th)? it makes perfect sense to me that rim would do something like take preorders on launch day.

and it also makes perfect sense to me that ai would get something wrong in a story, because they always do. i'm gonna go with the latter.
