BerryReview.com is reporting that the BlackBerry Playbook is currently on mega sale at the Official BlackBerry Store! This is the cheapest we’ve seen since the Best Buy deal (out of stock in a few hours) back in November when the 64GB BlackBerry Playbooks were on sale for $229.
We don’t know if this is a price mistake or not, but as the screenshot suggests, the pricing for all 3 (16GB, 32GB, and 64GB) models are at $299.00! The sale is expected to end on 2/4/2012.
- BlackBerry Playbook 16GB : $299.00
- BlackBerry Playbook 32GB : $299.00
- BlackBerry Playbook 64GB : $299.00
As a side-note, if you want to buy the 16GB Playbook, you could buy it for $259.99 but for just $40 more, you could snatch a 64GB from the Official Store – I’d say get the 64GB.
BlackBerry Playbooks aren’t all that bad actually. I don’t own one so I can’t really speak for it, but I’ve played around with it and it wasn’t all that bad for what it does at its current price point. My friend actually bought a Playbook when it released and liked it – it’s no iPad but it did everything that it needed to do without a hitch.
The BlackBerry Playbook is certainly not an iPad, but for just $299, I think it’s a great buy. If you want to check the Playbook out before you buy, check out Engadget’s in-depth review.
