• RIM Confirms The 16 GB PlayBook Will Be Discontinued

    Well it looks as though we can say good by to the 16 GB version of the BlackBerry PlayBook. Earlier in the week we told you that RIM was thinking about discontinuing the 16 GB PlayBook, but at that time there was no conformation on whether or not it was actually going to happen.Now there is. The PR team over at RIM issued the following statement regarding the matter:

    "RIM will no longer be making the 16 GB model of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. The 16 GB PlayBook will continue to be available for distributors and retailers while quantities last. We continue to remain committed to the tablet space and the 32 GB and 64 GB models of the BlackBerry PlayBook continue to be available from our distributors and retailers around the world.

    There is more value for our customers in the higher capacity models (32 GB, 64 GB), and as such we have decided to focus our efforts here."

    Now this may come as sad news to some, but the reasoning behind it just makes sense. 16 GB of space simply is not enough room for most people. After downloading a couple of high-definition movies one can quickly see their space dwindling. For those of you thinking about purchasing a PlayBook now would be a great time as the last of the 16 GB PlayBook's are now being flushed out of retailers inventory. There may not be a price change, but if cost is an issue you may want to get one while they last.
