Insight Enterprises is set to enjoy exclusive B2B access to RIM's new BlackBerry PlayBook tablet for about three months, ChannelWeb understands.
Mobile Today reported last month that the reseller would, alongside retailers such as Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy, be able to stock the device from launch.
ChannelWeb understands Insight will enjoy B2B exclusivity for the device's launch period, believed to be 90 days, leaving rivals such as Computacenter and Misco out in the cold.
It is understood there will be three models available: a 16GB, a 32GB and a 64GB. Prices are expected to start at about £340. More details on the announcement are expected sometime next week. Insight was unavailable to comment.
The PlayBook launched last month in North America, and first-day sales of the device were estimated to be about 50,000.
