Staples cutting BlackBerry PlayBook price to $199 for a Black Friday deal
posted by Alan F. / Nov 10, 2011, 1:39 PM
As you might expect, there are some rules that prospective buyers must follow. First, the deal will be offered at stores only, not online. Also, the special price is available for just one tablet per customer. As part of Staple's "Door-Buster" sales, the $199 price will start at 6am and run until noon on Black Friday.
The BlackBerry PlayBook has been plagued by poor sales and the lack of some important native apps like a calendar and email, although a February update is expected to remedy this situation.

$199 isnt enough. $99 to put in the touchpad firesale realm then we're talking. $199 for this is basically same as Kindle Fire, the unit itself is basically the same, but app support much better on Kindle.

This is a steal of a deal. Best and most powerful tablet on the market and with the native SDK that makes developing apps 10x easier than another tablet for developers you would be crazy not to pick one up! This this is just picking up traction and getting better and better every day.
