Blackberry maker Research-in-Motion announced that it has sold 2,50,000 Playbook tablets within one month of launch. Playbook launched in April this year failed to make an initial impact as pre-launch reviews had described it as a ‘half baked’ product by RIM in an attempt to project it as a rival to iPad.

BlackBerry tablet was selling much better than Motorola’s Xoom tablet which runs Android. And the recall of about 1,000 PlayBooks has reportedly not impacted its sales.

RIM is expected to sell about 500,000 tablets in the current quarter, and only about two million in the entire year since its launch. RIM is targeting the PlayBook at its over 60 million BlackBerry subscribers as the Wi-Fi tablet will link with the BlackBerry smart phone through BlackBerry Bridge without the need to subscribe to a wireless carrier.

The 7″, Wi-Fi-only PlayBook comes in these models 16, 32 and 64 gigabytes of storage capacity, and in the price range of $499 to $699. 3G and 4G versions of Playbook will be launched soon.
