BlackBerry PlayBook Firesale: US Prices Dropped to $299 for ALL Models

by on January 3rd, 2012

The RIM PlayBook holiday prices have continued throughout the New Year. Prices have been reduced to get rid of remaining stock, part of RIM’s almost $500 million dollar write off on the tablet, seen as a major disappointment by investors and critics.

Prices across Canadian retailers such as Future Shop and on RIM’s website still show the following prices:

16GB PlayBook: $199
32GB PlayBook: $249
64GB PlayBook: $399

The Real PlayBook Firesale is in the U.S.A.

In the U.S., RIM has slashed prices for ALL three models to $299, regardless of capacity. This is a deal for the 64GB model at that price!

If you’re looking for a discount tablet, the PlayBook is worth considering. But remember, there’s still no native email, calendar, or contacts application. The promised February software update has still yet to be released. The latest rumours are that the co-CEOs Jim and Mike will lose their roles as co-chairmen of the board.
