Best Buy is offering $50 to $150 discounts off its BlackBerry PlayBook selection
Sure it’s not on the same level as the HP TouchPad right now in terms of pricing, but Best Buy is throwing a mini sale for the BlackBerry PlayBook right now for those interested in picking up RIM’s offering.

Best Buy is offering $50 to $150 discounts off its BlackBerry PlayBook selection
Going in until September 5th, the big box retailer is offering discounts of up to $150 off its BlackBerry PlayBook selection. Specifically, you can obtain a $50 discount off the 16GB and 32GB versions of the PlayBook – while the 64GB is blessed with a $150 price reduction. Essentially, the 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB PlayBooks are now priced at $450, $550, and $550 respectively. Strangely, it boggles our head on why they didn’t give the 32GB a proper discount seeing it’s priced similarly to the 64GB one.

Nevertheless, these reductions are only going to be valid for a limited time, so you might want to come down with a decision now to pick one up.

It's clear the 64GB is just not selling as well as the 32GB and hence the same price for both products.

I think RIM needs to wake up and face reality -- those devices will sell at the $300 price point. It's a 7" device trying to take on 10" competitors.

Forget it. $450 is too much for a gadget with limited function. Besides, the display is ONLY 7". In contrast, the newer Acer 7" tablet is only $349! I believe that the fair market price for this is $299 at the most. $250 is probably the upper limit for the 16GB version.
