Blackberry Playbook FIRESALE like HP touchpad likely coming soon. hold off on buying playbooks
just a heads up,
blackberry has already started selling us employees the playbook for $99 for the 16gb. There are whispers and rumors that they might have a firesale a la touchpad. I will update this as I get more info.
There was a limit of 2 playbooks per employee. I bought 2 of each the 16gb for $99 and 2 32 gb for $149 each.
Update 1: I honestly would not pay much attention to the gizmodo and other articles. Their "sources" are probably people like myself and the rest is just pure speculation. The best buy cancellation orders may or may not correlate with the demand but trust me the playbooks are not doing very well. We are in pretty rough shape here...
Blackberry Employee Deal [theverge.com]
Copied from this article comment
Misleading headline. RIM employees get a $100 discount every Christmas. The only policy change was that they are now able to apply that discount to the already discounted Playbooks.
It’s not a specific $99 employee price per se. Though it does work out that way after they use their Christmas present.
I would call this post a pure speculation and nothing much, Best Buy already released an official statement saying they are out of inventory.
"Starting Sunday, November 20th, Best Buy offered $300 instant savings to the BlackBerry PlayBook, reducing the price to $299.99 and $199.99 for the 32 GB and 16 GB, respectively. Customers have responded very positively to this short-term promotion available until Dec. 3 and, as a result, we are currently sold out of our inventory. We will have additional units available in the near future, at which time customers will be able to purchase the devices online at www.bestbuy.com. "
Is the OP smoking crack or what? Playbook promotional sales not doing good? then he should check the today's ebay deal on the playbook, they are sold out merely in hours after the sale went live as well,
If it's like the TP, they won't be super easy to get at that price. But that would really trump the awesome price of the Nook Color this past weekend at $119 on ebay. Interesting what the Kindle Fire is doing to the market.
