    Walmart Jumping On The PlayBook Price-Slashing Train


    For as long as I can remember, Walmart has always been known for their amazing ability to reduce prices lower than most, if not all, other competitors. As for the PlayBook prices, the Canadian Walmarts seem to be slightly decreasing the prices of the PlayBooks. Well, they are for two. I recently wrote about Staples cutting PlayBook prices but Walmart only beat two of those prices... And only just barely. Walmart cut the prices of the 16GB and 64GB by one less dollar than Staples. That's $198 and $398 at Walmart, as compared to $199 and $399 at Staples. The 32GB however is dramatically different. Staples wins this one at $249, while Walmart is selling for $298. For now, these rolled back prices are only available in Canada. Starting in Quebec stores from November 16th to the 22nd, then on to the rest of Canada on the 18th through the 24th.

    • So how to decide, a consistent price cut for a whole week on all three PlayBook GB sizes or fabulous price cuts as well as an even greater savings by picking up a 32GB on only one early morning shopping spree? I know what I would pick! Which would you rather go with?

    Okay, can somebody get me that 64GB one and see how much it is to ship to Holland?
    Cause with the old proces here (simmilar to an iPad), Im never gonna get one here :S
    We, The Dutchies, demand that RIM lowers prices here or.... or..... or we'll stop making cheese and wooden shoes!
    There! *get's his well earned coffee and gets ready for work*

    We Dutchies go Global
    Even Texas isn't safe from us
    But yeah, we're to nice. Specially when being someones boyfriend, that usually makes a Dutchie even nicer :P
    But here it's a crisp € 649 for a 32GB and don't get me started on the 46GB
    Even with the $128 shipping from DHL its still cheaper And seeing it's Canadian dollars Id do it.
    Its € 286 plus the $128 (€98) shipping thats a big win for me :PMake
    it 2 and put a (sorry if your a Cowboys fan) Arian Foster jersy in it too

    I get the feeling you're not a texans fan?
    Or not a football fan?
