BlackBerry PlayBook Will Cost Less Than $500

When Research in Motion’s forthcoming BlackBerry Playbook tablet ships early next year it will be “very competitively priced.” This according to company co-CEO Jim Balsillie, who tells Bloomberg Businessweek that the price will be “under” $500. Just how far under $500 it will fall remains to be seen, but presumably the point here is to make it a compelling buy compared to Samsung’s $599.99 Galaxy Tab and Apple’s iPad, which starts at $499. So $498.99?

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
