PlayBook Gets Best Buy Price Cut
Best Buy said Thursday that it is dropping the price of all versions of the BlackBerry PlayBook by $200. The three versions now cost $199, $299 and $399, PCWorld reported.
Also Thursday, BlackBerry maker Research in Motion denied an analyst report that the company had decided to discontinue the PlayBook and exit the tablet space. A RIM spokesperson, citing an analyst report earlier in the day, described it as "pure fiction" and reiterated the company's commitment to the PlayBook in an interview with BGR.
