Best Buy: Our RIM PlayBook Prices Are INSANE
Add Best Buy to the list of retailers heavily discounting Research In Motion’s struggling BlackBerry PlayBook.
The company slashed $200 off the price of the tablet today, following similar moves by Office Depot and Staples. Beginning today, the 16GB model is now available for $299, the 32GB for $399, and the 64GB for $499.
Quite a discount. Question is, will anyone care? At $299, the 16GB PlayBook is still $100 more than Amazon’s new $199 Kindle Fire. And as I noted here earlier this morning, the Fire is a pretty compelling proposition for consumers looking at 7-inch tablets like the PlayBook.
