BlackBerry's 'professional tablet', the PlayBook, will get a price tag of under $500 at its launch in Q1 of 2011. The 7-inch tablet will be on par with Apple's Wi-Fi-only iPad and will undersell the $599 3G Galaxy Tab by Samsung…

what I want to see is a pad that easily bluetooths to a small keyborad similar to apples and can act as a screen extension if plugged into a laptop or netbook. Otherwise, I still do not see the usefulness of having a tablet.

Pricing is way too high for any of these tablets. The Galaxy Tab is ridiculously overpriced, and I hope that it's sales are terrible so the price falls to $450 which is where it belongs. Then they need to say screw you to the carriers and sell it unlocked in the USA. The iPad is overpriced as well, and you're pretty much an idiot if you pay that kind of money for any of them. But hey, what I think is worth it and what others think is worth it are two different things. I’m glad Blackberry isn’t as dumb as Samsung and is pricing their underneath the iPad, but even that needs to come down. If I were another manufacturer, I’d price a MeeGo 64GB tablet at $499, and make a killing in sales.
