    O2 UK announced on Thursday that it “will not be selling” the BlackBerry PlayBook. The wireless carrier began notifying customers who had signed up for more information about its change of heart on Thursday.

    The official release from O2 states: “unfortunately there are some issues with the end to end customer experience.” Boy Genius Reports that they believe it is due to the lack of a native email client (RIM says that they will have it in a future release...).

    This jibes with the review BGR released stating that it felt like the Playbook was unfinished in it's design.

    O2 did say that it could offer the product at a later date, and that it will work with Research In Motion on its BlackBerry PlayBook products in the future.
