16GB, 32GB, and 64GB versions of the BlackBerry PlayBook are all priced at $299 online
This time around, the 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB versions of the PlayBook, essentially all models, are now priced at $299 through RIM’s Shop BlackBerry store online. Of course, $299 for the 16GB and 32GB versions is higher than the prices we’ve seen flaunted of late, but the 64GB one is priced considerably lower than before.
February 4th to be exact.
Shipping is included with the purchase, but as it currently stands, they’ll ship within 7 to 14 business days from the time they’re purchased. Either way, you can bet that a lot of people are going to gravitate towards the 64GB model above all.

Oh thanks RIM $300 for a 64 gb playbook. While the other models are at the same price sweet.

I hope they release a 10 inch version and a updated 7 inch version soon.

Still way to much...fire sale that thing like hp did with the touchpad for 99.00 and the thing will sell.

Oddly enough, I think $99 is still too much to pay for it. All you can do is surf the web on it and use a handful of so-so apps. Touchpad was a much better deal...in fact I think the TP at full price is a better deal than the PB at discounted prices.

Thats not true. QNX platform was built with the ability to use android apps as well as blackberry apps.. so as soon as its enabled officially (i think i just read an article where it was hacked in anyways), that opens it up to hundreds of thousands of new apps.

I am very interested in seeing how the Playbook works with Blackberry Bridge. It appears that the Playbook can browse the web via Bluetooth connection with one's Blackberry smartphone. This means one can tether for free? Awesome!
