Its been a while that RIM had realized that Blackberry Playbook sales didn’t went as planned therefore they had already planned to lower the Playbook prices and here we go now you can buy BlackBerry PlayBook for $299.99 in Canada from the home country of RIM. Although Best Buy and Future Shop are offering the Playbook  16 GB for $299.99 however on purchase either you get $100 rebate or you get a gift voucher worth $100 and on the same line the 32 GB model  for $399.99.

BlackBerry PlayBook specifications are,

  • 1 GHz TI OMAP4 dual core processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel capacitive touchscreen display
  • QNX operating system
  • 16/32/64 GB storage
  • 5 MP Camera, 2592×1944 pixels with autofocus
  • 1080p video recording
  • 3 MP front camera
  • 425 g weight
With the specifications almost matching iPad 2 and costing appox half is a sure go but the major imitation Playbook is facing is the limited support for applications due to QNX OS which is not that popular among developers and publishers resulting in nonavailability of applications and games. Ahtough we are listening that Blackberry is planning to being Android Applications support in coming Software update for QNX OS and if that happens Playbook is a sure go. Its only the beginning and expectantly the sale will extend to US and UK in near future.
You might also remember HP giving a $99 HP TouchPad due to officially turning down WebOS marking the lowest Tablet rates ever.
