PlayBook Sales Called Strong at Best Buy
Best Buy has experienced strong sales of the Blackberry PlayBook 7-inch tablet since its launch last week, a company executive told ComputerWorld.
"Best Buy has had great success selling BlackBerry smartphones in North America, so our sales expectations for the BlackBerry PlayBook were very high," Best Buy said in a statement to the magazine. "To date, we have far exceeded those expectations and we're finding that customers are even more interested in purchasing once they've tested the PlayBook in the store."
The tablet, Research in Motion's first, has been the subject of mostly negative reviews.
