$199 isnt enough. $99 to put in the touchpad firesale realm then we're talking. $199 for this is basically same as Kindle Fire, the unit itself is basically the same, but app support much better on Kindle.

The PlayBook is just not getting traction. It was a case study of how NOT to release a new product to market. I doubt any would sell even at a $50 price point.

This is a steal of a deal. Best and most powerful tablet on the market and with the native SDK that makes developing apps 10x easier than another tablet for developers you would be crazy not to pick one up! This this is just picking up traction and getting better and better every day.
