This hasn't gotten the same press as the Touchpad firesale. But quietly over the past week Playbooks have been substantially discounted (mainly through Staples). Last week Staples had the playbooks 50% off for business customers. This week select customers received email coupons up to $200 off the playbooks. For example i got 32gb playbook for $299 (50%) off last week. Combine this with $100 mastercard prepaid card mail in rebate means I got the playbook 32gb for around $200 plus taxes. For those who havent played with a playbook, lets just say its fast. It has similiar 3D hardware graphics chip as ipad 2. of course it has short comings since rim rushed the product out. But RIM is quietly trying to clear inventory. i own the ipad 2. But 7 inch tablet is so portable and lightweight to put in my briefcase. And i own both blackberry and iphone. With Playbook I get free internet via the bridge with Tmobile(ATT blocks the free internet).
