New year sale on the BlackBerry PlayBook has been cut short by a week - set to expire on January 28
Do you happen to remember that awesome sale RIM blessed its BlackBerry PlayBook earlier in the month to ring in the new year, the one where that priced all versions of the PlayBook (16GB, 32GB, & 64GB) at the same price point of $299.99? Initially, the sale was expected to go on until February 4th, but after taking a look at the same sale at RIM’s Shop BlackBerry web site, we see a totally new date for its expiration.

Strangely, the sale is being cut short by a full week – with it set to expire at the end of the month on 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!

im not sure why they would come out with a new tablet besides a 10 inch one. the pb 1 is probably the best build 7 inch tablet going. if it could dual boot android/qnsx (or whatever its called) it would make for a sweet tablet.

the sound and screen on the pb is top notch.

i have owned or used the tab and flyer. they both suck in comparison. but they triumph because of better software

Well. I order the 64GB version & revceived it 2 weeks ago.

It´s very weird that they have cutted down the frame.

Maybe the new CEO is considering too cheap & wants to readjust the price.

I just go to shop.blackberry.com & it seems that they have fixed back the dat to Feb 4th. The systems shows that 11 days remains.

Maybe the CEO changed his mind.. lol

It is a great tablet and totally worth the price. Im tempted to get a 64gb and give my wife my 16gb. The screen, sound, speed, and os are great, I liked it better than my friend's Ipad 2. Yes, apps, apps, apps, but Im not huge into apps. I would like some Skype and Netflix action on this though, I'll be happy when that happens.
