    Looks like RIM will need to take another $400-500M charge on Playpoop tablets that aren't selling especially

    Did my checks in Canada at the local dealers for my short thesis and found out that the carriers have only supplied their flagship stores in the business district. I went to the Rogers store right behind the Rogers Centre (Skydome) which is coroporate and he told me they have never even had a playbook to place in the showroom.

    The Eaton Centre store said they sold 2.and 1 was returned. So all in all I swear to God, in real sales I can estimate that they have sold less than 1000 Playbook LTE's across Canada! Hehehehe

    This is going to be a HUGE write down on a brand new technology and product. Their marketing and placement is worse than a kid and his lemonaide stand. So sad. Go check for yourself.
