RIM has just announced the 7″ Playbook will be coming to 16 more markets over the following month after releasing the new tablet in the U.S. over a month ago. The tablet from RIM has been criticized and praised from reviewers across the web. Features like multi-tasking and several UI elements have been excellent features for the pocket-sized tablet while the force closes and half-baked nature keep it from really taking on the iPad head to head. Well, that and the limited 7″ screen size without offering a 10″ version at the moment. Regardless, if you like your email tied to your phone, as well as a slightly chubby, yet pocketable tablet, you might want to hit the link for the full press release and the new market rundown.
