Best Buy Pulls The PlayBook
The Black Friday deals may have been too good for Best Buy. Earlier in the week Best Buy like many other stores reported
that they would be selling the 16 GB BlackBerry PlayBook at $199.99, that's about $300 in saving. I like many others were excited to take advantage of killer prices, practically giving the PlayBook away.
The excitement quickly turned into frustration as many people have been having their order cancelled with little or no explanation. Statements like the device being out of stock or your payment was unable to be processed were among the number of explanations that users have been receiving from Best Buy. I was able to get a Best Buy representative on the phone and they stated that corporate had "cancelled all BlackBerry PlayBook orders". Forum posts
regarding the issue have been quickly popping up over at the official Best Buy Forums
. Clearly somethings going on. Whats going on with Best Buy? Do they have the device or not? If you are experiencing something like this from Best Buy please let us know in the forums.
