January 28th. Indeed that’s an unusual move, but it also begs the question why the ship dates associated with all tablets have been on a consistent 7 to 14 business days. Needless to say, we’re sure that existing tablet owners are dearly waiting for that beloved PlayBook 2.0 software to launch, especially when all fingers point to next month, but it’s still rather strange why RIM has cut the sale by over a week.
Could it all be due to the recent shakeup over at RIM’s camp? Or maybe they’re prepping some sort of new tablet? We can guess until we’re all guessed out, but it’s obviously clear that you’ll need to think fast on your feet if you really want to pick up that 64GB PlayBook – seeing that there are only 4 days left for this sale!
