RIM has sold 250,000 BlackBerry PlayBooks according to RBC
According to Abramsky, "Checks at 180 Best Buys show 14% of the 16GB sold out, 71% of the 32GB sold out, and 84% of the 64GB sold out; however, 32GB/64B stockouts appear allocation-related." And while no one expects the PlayBook to outperform the Apple iPad 2, the 7 inch tablet is off to a great start, getting high marks for multitasking and web browsing.

Good stuff. The sales figures don't surprise me, especially when there is a bucket load of OS buyers (such as me in Austraila) picking these up.
Once RIM gets these officially launched world wide (like the iPad 2) that sales figure will dramatically increase for sure!

ya becuse they have sold less than the original ipad did on its first day...

ya because the iPad was a world wide release on its first day, unlike the PB which was only US specific....
Still not bad for a device that was touted as being an ifail...

Can anyone say "Channel Stuffing?"
Note 14% of 16B sold-out or 86% still there. Recall accounting of FIFO (first in first out) or FISH (first in still here).

that means it makes it less of a fail than the Motofail Xoom.
