BlackBerry PlayBook $499 At Launch

By Paul Barraza

The BlackBerry PlayBook has made an appearance in Office Depot’s inventory system. The tablet is showing up with the price point of $499 for the 16GB version under contract. This is exactly the price we posted in our “Hands On” article during CES.

The Office Depot inventory system shows the PlayBook being available in week 17 which is late April.

I can see the launch price dropping fast with all the tablet competition hitting in the next 3 months, or at least we can hope.
