Default Playbook firesale? 50% off pricing.

Please Login to Remove!

According to some chatter on CB there is a 50% off sale at Staples happening Sept. 7 and 8th. Does this mean there is a new device coming? Or is inventory just not moving?

Quote:
-Orders will be taken via phone on September 7th and 8th and they will be FIRST come FIRST serve basis. If order is taken and stock runs out you will not be charged.

-All orders that have not already been taken will have to be placed on a FIRST come FIRST serve basis on September 7th and 8th.
-All orders must ship to a US address and will require a signature and must be paid by a credit card when order is placed.
-They will have access to each model 16GB, 32GB and 64GB, they just don't know how many in stock of each.
-Unknown quantity of each will be available.
-There is no limit on the quantity that you may order.

PM me and i'll forward you the contact information. I am asking that everyone please refrain from re-posting contact information. If contact information is passed on from me the sales representative will do their best to accomodate those orders.

Nothing similar on staples.ca (not even the $100 off discussed in the comments to the link).

This was for select business customers only. It was not a public sale.

I'm so dumb, I got mine at 500 at Sears. Well, I hope I won't regret it. Its a nice looking device. I have to upgrade my bold 9000 to use it and I have to see if the bridging works.

I find its hard to get info on what each of these tablets will do. Competition is so intense, Apple is such a bastard monopolistic company. Anyway, if my playbook does what it says it will do, I won't be unhappy.

I agree with you here, what we need is a site where you can plug in all the things you want your tablet to do to include software you would like it to run and let it advise what's the best choice for you. That would be some massive undertaking and a lot of work to keep current but I could see that site getting an awful lot of hits so would make advertising on it a premium...

There are some deals on in Canada:

Staples $399 plus FREE PlayBook Travel Charger, Gel Skin and Zip Sleeve
Sears $299 plus free leather case for the 16Gb

Both expire in the next few days. I can't post the URLs as I don't have 15 posts but you can easily find the offers.
