RIM recalls 1,000 PlayBook tablets

In a statement to CrackBerry.com, the BlackBerry maker said the majority of the affected devices were still in the distribution channel and had not reached customers. The company is working to replace the affected tablets, it said.

The Engadget blog reported on Saturday that the faulty batch was shipped to office supply chain Staples Inc.

Research In Motion had hoped to turn around its fortunes with the launch of the PlayBook tablet, but the product won poor reviews and complaints it was rushed out before it was ready.
