    32GB Playbook at Staples for $199

    The price is listed for the 16GB, but when you checkout, it will show the 32GB version (Staples link). Just got my confirmation email:

    BLACKBERRY 32GB SUB FOR 1
    Item No.: 414877 Price: $499.00/each
    Expected Delivery: 11/30/2011 by UPS 1 $499.00


    Subtotal: $499.00
    Delivery: FREE
    Coupon1: -$300.00
    Tax: $16.42
    Total: $215.42
    The deal for the 16GB is for 199, but they're OOS and they're shipping the $100 more expensive 32GB. YMMV.

    So it's $400.00 OFF list price if I get the 32GB. If it's the 16GB, it's not such a big deal anymore, since it's expected that the 16GB will be everywhere for $199.00 on BF; but it's still selling on ebay for $240.00 so (now).

    Great deal, I plan to keep it if I can run Android apps (it's in beta already), or more likely I'll resell it for a profit.

    The playbook is made by the same manufacturer as the Amazon Fire (also $199), only the Amazon has only 8GB, no cameras, no Bluetooth. And the QNX seems promising, RIM has no other way out than to develop for it, since it will be on the next generation BB phones.

    Cheers.

    It's confirmed, everybody is getting the 32GB version for the 16GB prices (other people who ordered earlier than me). Can't wait to get mine. Don't know if the deal is live, but maybe? I also heard the same is happening at Bestbuy online, it seems there's no more 16GB available, but don't quote me on this. Huge YMMV kind of deal.
