BlackBerry PlayBook: Less Than US$500

Bloomberg Businessweek:

Research In Motion Ltd., moving into the tablet-computer market for the first time, said it will begin selling its BlackBerry PlayBook for less than $500, suggesting RIM may try to undercut Apple Inc.’s iPad.

Less than $500 usually translates to $499. And that’s where the first generation iPad’s pricing begins. By next year Apple will move onto iPad 2.0 and the tablet market will be remarkably different, again.
