A few weeks ago we told you about the BlackBerry PlayBook launch event Thursday April 14th in NYC – Invite ONLY! Our partner in crime Brad from Berry Reporter manage to snap these awesome photos just a few minutes ago and BBMed them to me. As you can see from the image above co-CEO Mike Lazaridis is in attendance in NYC. RIM is also handing out a FREE BlackBerry PlayBook to those that are attending the event tonight. Tell us what you think.
