More problems for Canada's Research in Motion.  Sprint Nextel Corp has decided not to offer a high-speed version of RIM's PlayBook tablet because of  withering demand.

R.I.P. Dell Streak 5
The five-inch Dell Streak, an oversized smartphone masquerading  to be a tablet, is officially heading to the tech graveyard (hello Sony Betamax!) as the computer giant bets on larger-format tablets that can compete better with Apple’s popular iPad.  Dell is now relying on its seven- and ten-inch tablets, much closer to iPad's form factor.

Possible September Launch for ASUS Eee Pad Slider
Judging by a recent report from Notebook Italia and the tab's new product page, it's possible that there will be a September launch for the 10.1-incher -- in Italy. Contrary to prior rumors, the company will be offering the Slider in two storage configurations -- 16GB and 32GB at potential €479 and €599 price points overseas, while $400 and $550 models should hit the United States.
