$1.7 million of BlackBerry PlayBooks stolen while being transported
The joke might be on the perps because the first BlackBerry tablet just has not been selling well and has been the recipient of a number of price cuts. Additionally, clues found in the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 suggest that a new model with a higher resolution display and 4G LTE support could be on the way. The BlackBerry PlayBook is expected to get a firmware update sometime in February which will take care of some gaps that RIM left on the tablet when it was originally launched such as the lack of a calendar and an e-mail application.
If you are in the South Florida area, don't be surprised if some shady characters come up to you, trying to sell you a BlackBerry PlayBook at a great price. Remember, there is no such thing as a free lunch so you might want to assume that the tablet they want to sell you is hot.
