Staples is now accepting pre-orders for the BlackBerry PlayBook on their web site
Naturally, we’re one step closer to that inevitable time because Staples has just given the green lights for pre-orders on the tablet through its web site. Listed at $499 with anticipated shipping dates between April 18th and 20th, you can utterly feel that the time is nearing for this one to finally land in the palm of your hands.
Precisely entering the thick of battle with some other respected tablets looming in the near future, it’ll be interesting to see how the BlackBerry PlayBook will compete in this already competitive market. Nonetheless, its $499 pricing will undoubtedly attract some people since it doesn’t necessarily come off as something that's too much of a costly investment.

the playbook looks a million times better than these failure android tablets being released.

This isn't the iPad 2. There should be plenty of PlayBook tablets available on launch day. Unless Apple's vacuuming of touchscreen production capacity forces a onesy-twosy allocation of whatever supply is available....

I would much rather spend $450 on the Acer Iconia Tab A500

I'm actually quite excited to see what RIM will bring to the table with this tab. It really feels like they are going to bring out everything they have...something they should have done with the Torch, but epically failed at.

Sounds like RIM is going to fail at this as well. LOL!

I am excited to fool around with one. Hopefully the model in the store will be live so that I can determine if it is truly useful. Though...I would say that I am way more interested in the HP tablet than this Seemingly silly playbook. It is certain that a feeling of "hurry and get one" is not present.
