Blackberry Playbook

When, where, how much?

 

Please update this forum when Best Buy gets any information regarding the release date and price and possibly pre-order dates? I'm saving up my pennies and I really really want one. The device looks pretty sweet, and the specs seem to be really good.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hey lazz,

 

The last update I was given was that the Playbook would be available April 22. This date is subject to change, but I'll keep you updated on this thread as I hear more. No details on pricing as of yet, but we will be publishing a blog a few days before the product launches.

 

Stay tuned! Smiley Wink

 

Cheers,

Heather

Re: Blackberry Playbook

So April 22 is the launch day for Best Buy? Do you know anything about other retailers like **competitor**? Also, have you heard if all 3 memory versions (16, 32, 64 GB) will be available at launch? 

 

Most of the pricing rumors I've heard are $499 for the 16GB wifi only. I'm hoping this goes down to at least $399. 

 

I really hope there are no more delays. Its been so long since the original announcement.

Be patient everyone, expect something awesome to come very soon. Sign sealed NDAs which is why nobody is talking about it here. =)

So preorders are available now? Can someone confirm please? The article below does state Canadian as well, and it states BestBuy is offering it. Not sure if I want to get the 64g or settle with the 16g, but we'll see.

 

EDIT:

 

Nevermind the link for the article. hehe, I'm happy to see Bestbuy preorder links.... Thanks a bunch. Seems to have taken RIM forever to get this product out. But I'm happy that it has finally arrived.

 

$499.99

Re: Blackberry Playbook

When will the 3G version of the Blackberry Playbook be released?
