RIM seems to have had the most perfect start for 2012 coming its way especially after a period of lull that it was facing. News has it that slashing the prices of their PlayBook tablet has worked wonders for the Canadian company, since this way they managed to sell off all units of their tablet, across all retail outlets in the country. Research in Motion decided to slash the prices of their PlayBook tablet by half i.e. Rs.13,490 for the 16-GB version. The fortunate turn of events has pleased the company so much that it has decided to extend this festive offer by another week. To facilitate this, RIM has begun stocking on fresh units of the tablet, which, if all goes good, should fly off shelves in a week's time.
Sold off, more to come
Economic Times quotes Research In Motion Managing Director India Sunil Dutt as saying, "We are pleased to see the excitement and overwhelming response to our limited festive season offer on BlackBerry PlayBook. I believe that the 16-GB and 32-GB version of the PlayBook is completely sold out in the retail channels." The report further states that, "The company sold more than 12,000 devices in just four days since the offer was announced on December 28 and distributors -- Redington and Ingram -- are waiting for new stock to come in."
So, if you were waiting for the right time to buy the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, then this seems to be one.
