    Insider Pricing Revealed For BlackBerry PlayBook?



    Speculation leads to rumors branching directly from it. The latest reports claimed that pricing for the PlayBook would be under $500.00(USD). A contact at Mobility Insider has now reported that their inside contact has given them a market pricing guideline.

    As far as build specs, they remain true to what has been talked about previously. All three models will retain all the same features, with just the internal memory sizes being different. WiFi or tethering to your BlackBerry will be the only way an internet connection will be available.

    The pricing for the BlackBerry PlayBook is deemed to be as follows:

    8GB: $399.00
    16GB: $499.00
    32GB: $599.00

    If this is correct information, the pricing would help it move with the iPad, considering that there is no need for an extra monthly data plan to be purchased. BUT...a 32GB device as the top tier device? For $599.00? Still seems like a step behind the iPad to me.

    What are your thoughts on this pricing?

    The pricing is at about what I thought it would be. Still, I think a $100 less per device would be better.

    The memory should be SD cards right? If so, that is a plus to be able to pop in and out extra memory cards. Especially if the tablet is going to harness a ton of media.

    From the videos that have been showing up I dont think its a SD card I think the memory is built in like the IPAD because they were marked on the back as to how much space they each had. Plus how could you justify $100 extra for an SD card that can be had for under $20. That price though I getting one for sure Ill go with the 16GB I hope that they have a SD slot to add more memory that would be icing on the cake.

    Would defintely prefer one with a SD slot for additional memory. I would have to go with 16GB or 32GB when purchasing as I don't think 8GB would be enough. It would be really nice if they were on the market before Christmas. Although it would be nice if the pricing was a little lower I don't think the prices are set too high.
