First there was an HP TouchPad fire sale at $99. Now, it looks like it’s RIM’s turn to showcase their hot 7″ tablet. A flyer was posted to the RedFlagDeals forums (check out their new iPhone app) that shows Walmart Canada started selling the Playbook for $198 for the 16GB model. The 32GB and 64GB models are $298 and $398.
The sale started today in Quebec (until November 22nd), and will hit the rest of Canada tomorrow (until the 24th). The RFD thread was updated tonight to show Best Buy, Future Shop, and Staples will also sell the Playbook at a huge discount tomorrow for $199. These prices are $300 off RIM’s suggested retail prices. The device only sold 45,000 on launch day, and did not come with native email at the time.
Who’s getting one of these iPad competitors?
Thanks to Jordan and Rick for the emails!
