You’ve probably already heard about $199 BlackBerry PlayBooks about to hit shelves at various retailers just in time for the Holiday season, but up until now it was only whispers and leaked ads. Now, it’s official - RIM has tweeted that its 7-inch professional tablet, which the Canadians hoped would help them be on par with the iPad and the tablet market, will be discounted down from its original retail price of $500.
Staples, Best Buy, and Future Shop, but others could also join in. We've checked the retailers' listings and while the discount hasn't yet appeared, it should be there soon. Now, one thing we’re not really sure about is how long will this deal last, but it seems that it’s not going away as soon as those $100 HP TouchPads.The list of retailers will include

I was waiting for the drop in price. Now is the time to actually consider the buy.

I think the Blackberry Playbook is hugely underrated, its smooth, portable, powerful, great screen, and if I see it for this price ill try to get it cuz I missed out on the Touchpad one.

wOot wOOt I always love the Playbook it's super smooth and great creen and powerful, but couldnt afford the initial release price $200 is great for me, but only IF I can get one, it would sell like a hotcake

Yeah, it will sell like hotcake, but I wonder how many of them will end up coming back to the store the day after Christmas...:-) It's a good tablet...better at this price. Is the Android Player available for it? Otherwise, plan on opening a Kobo account if your big on reading.
