Carrier's $10 unlimited data add-on makes connecting to the Web more affordable than with other carriers

TORONTO, April 19 /CNW/ - Mobilicity may not be the only Canadian wireless carrier introducing the BlackBerry® PlayBooktoday, but for consumers looking to get the most out of Research In Motion's debut tablet, it's the only carrier worth consumers' attention for a number of important reasons:
