I'd think it's pretty popular, who knows how many people called before you!?
I was nearby when OP posted this. I'd like to think I was the first one checking the stock at that store :lol:

I wonder if I can Price protect the one I bought back on BF :lol: This is what happens when we PM BB and they run out of stock.

If this is a firesale, maybe they are making room for PlayBook 2 ? This would really be a huge surprise...

Anyway, Futureshop still has it at full price.

Is BB not aware that BB10 is coming next week? :confused:
Why does everybody think they'll be installed BB10 on their playbooks at the end of the month. There is absolutely no information out there that suggests this.

I would suggest you to read the CEO's latest interview. It is strongly hinting that they want to get out of hardware market all together.

Westhills in Calgary doesn't have one. They are showing 1 Open Box but they can't find it anywhere. Had 2 guys check for me. Was also told that they had 5 phone calls in about 10 minutes for it. It must be horrible to be a Best Buy employee tonight.

that is officially the gross overstatement of the day... Thor just said they would not rule out licensing BB10 os.

If they had put it at this price last boxing day... I would have gotten one but nooooo... too bad I have a TF101 and iPad mini already. Tablet overload.

Seems like a pretty good deal if it is not a price error.
I used to be dah good, but then I took a chop stick to dah eye. So now I just...

Awesome! Thanks a ton! My local store showed none in stock, but I phoned in and there was an open box. Went in and it scanned at the wrong price, so I got it for $70 because of SCOP!

For $80? Can't be beat. Apps aren't anywhere near Android or iPad apps. Hopefully BB10 increases developer support.

I would buy one for checking my email and do some online banking and make online investment transactions without having to power on my PC. Will the browser on that playbook allow me to make online investment transactions?

I love my playbook but personally I think their current apps are pathetic. :lol: If you want to know you can go to their app world to have a look http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore ... s-playbook

But again, it depends on what kind of apps you want. To some people their apps are more than enough. We assume there will many more apps when BB10 is official; only time will tell.

I like the fact that's it's 7", much more portable than my 15.4" laptop. I used to start my computer in the morning to check my email but no more. I simply star the PB and have breakfast in the kitchen while checking email. I also use it to load movies and music to keep our son entertained while we travel. To me, it's really worth the investment.

To be fair, you can also side-load a lot of Android apps.
