Best Buy is offering $50 to $150 discounts off its BlackBerry PlayBook selection
Sure it’s not on the same level as the HP TouchPad right now in terms of pricing, but Best Buy is throwing a mini sale for the BlackBerry PlayBook right now for those interested in picking up RIM’s offering.

Going in until September 5th, the big box retailer is offering discounts of up to $150 off its BlackBerry PlayBook selection. Specifically, you can obtain a $50 discount off the 16GB and 32GB versions of the PlayBook – while the 64GB is blessed with a $150 price reduction. Essentially, the 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB PlayBooks are now priced at $450, $550, and $550 respectively. Strangely, it boggles our head on why they didn’t give the 32GB a proper discount seeing it’s priced similarly to the 64GB one.

Nevertheless, these reductions are only going to be valid for a limited time, so you might want to come down with a decision now to pick one up.

It's clear the 64GB is just not selling as well as the 32GB and hence the same price for both products. I think RIM needs to wake up and face reality -- those devices will sell at the $300 price point. It's a 7" device trying to take on 10" competitors.

Forget it. $450 is too much for a gadget with limited function. Besides, the display is ONLY 7". In contrast, the newer Acer 7" tablet is only $349! I believe that the fair market price for this is $299 at the most. $250 is probably the upper limit for the 16GB version.
