We’ve got some good news for those of you who have been holding out on getting a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. While it’s not the same as the buy-one-free-one promotion that RIM has for its business customers, RIM will be slashing the price of its QNX tablet down to the low price of $199 (16GB model of course) for a limited period of time. No word on how long this promotion will last, but judging by its #HappyHolidays hash tag, we doubt it’s going to last until after Christmas.
The price cut will only affect select US and Canadian retailers, and there hasn’t been any mention if it will be a global discount, but for those of you hoping for the price drop in your part of the world – keep those fingers crossed. In the meantime, check out our review of the BlackBerry PlayBook if you haven’t made your mind up yet.
