Actually I saw a deal on this somewhere for like $80 yesterday. But that was yesterday and I'm too lazy to search. BTW, I have this and wouldn't recommend it for anyone who doesn't have a bberry phone that you can tether it to. It's okay for kids but they're gonna wonder why they can't get all of their favorite games and you'll wonder why the games are $5-10 each!
it appears to be a nice deal for me. Playbook is ilkely to be supported by the new operating system BB10 that will be released at the end of this month.
I'm trying to figure out RIM on that point. On one hand, if they announce they will support BB10 on the Playbook, people will rush to buy at $99 and not buy their newest device (probably listing for $350). So maybe they're waiting to sell a bunch first and then release to the Playbook in a few months...after hackers already have it working?!
ive had a 64gb version of this along with several android tabs and ipads. in fairness the app store is weak compared to other platforms. HOWEVER, the browser in the playbook is better than any other platform IMO including flash playback. Therefore you really dont need a lot of apps just create shortcuts to your favorite sites on the app page and you are good to go. If you are looking for games youll be disappointed but as a productivity tool and web surfer its a solid unit. speaker placement/sound is awesome...is there really a media player like mxplayer on android which will play any file format that can be thrown at it??? i couldnt find one
That being said, i did also read/hear that only the 32/64gb versions of the playbook will support the upcoming upgrade to bbos10 some time before the end of 2013 and the 16gb would be excluded. Im sure someone will come out with a hacked scaled down version to run on it...speculation.
Amazon kindle fire can be had for under 100 now with similar specs and with a one click root u can turn it into basically a nexus7...8gb internal storgage only. weigh your options
