Best Buy says it sold out of PlayBooks
posted by Charlene S. / Nov 28, 2011, 8:38 PM
Best Buy said that the $300 price drop caused the PlayBook to sell so fast that they were forced to cancel orders that they did not have the inventory to fill and, subsequently, pulled the PlayBook listing from the website. Best Buy has made it clear that it has every intention of continuing to stock the PlayBook and is in the process of replenishing its inventory. Best Buy said the BlackBerry PlayBook should be back in stock and available for purchase on Best Buy’s website in the “near future.”
From the looks of the responses from consumers who had their order canceled, Best Buy probably should have just explained this when directly to consumers when their orders were cancelled. Hopefully Best Buy will continue to offer the PlayBook at this price point, at least for the customers who had their orders cancelled after the fact.

Makes you wonder. if RIM had priced the playbook at 200 before, they would have sold more than the iPad in the past couple of quarters. But then again they still dont have some basic functionality. Seriously.

i got my playbook in today from the tablet being on sale for $200 on sprint.com, not too many people must have known about the sprint sale bc i ordered it late in the evening in friday and they apparently were in stock all weekend.

not having android is a very good thing I have had the playbook for a few weeks now and is amazing, the apps are irelevant when you have the web itself. Other tablets need the app, the PB plays nice with most of the websites. One more thing: what other tablet supports Webgl. I like the iphone a lot, but for grandma, the windows phone is the same thing. they are anti stupid devices, click and launch, click and launch . there are a lot of grandmas out there and a lot of stupid people, so they will sell a lot of the clickand launch devices, with flashy colors etc. but for serious, productivity....meemo and BB, by a mile. I am veryimpressed with the PB . I am.
