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.
