    Time To Suck Up To RIM Connections: PlayBook Price At All-Time Low



    If you're lucky enough to have someone working at RIM that owes you a favor or two, now is your chance to cash in on that if you know what's good for you. BlackBerry PlayBook prices have officially seen the lowest prices imaginable. It's practically stealing at this point. Here's the details for making good on this deal of a lifetime:

    • Employees can acquire up to five (5) PlayBooks per person
    • The 16GB PlayBook is priced at a whopping $99
    • The 32GB PlayBook plus an HDMI cable is set at $149
    • (And the best deal) The 64GB PlayBook, an HDMI cable, and a convertible case at the mind-blowing price of only $199.

    Now if you've been under a rock the last few weeks and don't know what's good in the BlackBerry world, the 16GB PlayBook has only recently been dropped to $199. Now the 64GB plus two much-needed accessories can be bought for that same price. I have yet to be able to get over this and I would highly recommend partaking in this extravaganza that is a BlackBerry Playbook deal.

    Talked to a RIM employee buddy today about this and there are a few more costs involved. These purchases are subject to tax, shipping, and the saving is classed as a taxable benefit (roughly $30) to the RIM employee.

    Ah, the small fine print.

    Small price to pay, in my opinion. For the 16GB, $120 is still beating the other prices. Same goes for the other sizes, as well.

    On a slightly unrelated note. If they've got a surplus of PlayBooks that they need to practically give away, maybe someone should give RIM a nudge into sending some of the PlayBooks to Best Buy. Just a thought.
