BlackBerry maker Research in Motion (RIM) is finally gearing up to launch its long-awaited 4G LTE-enabled PlayBook tablet, according to a new report.
As reported by Mobile Syrup, an internal document from Canadian mobile service Bell indicates that the 4G LTE-enabled tablet will launch on July 31 for $549.95. There's no word yet as to whether the new model will be released in the U.S.
hahaha, you make me laugh. Speak of the basher who quoted song...about getting into his heart...yuk, and end with Ayuh.
Ayuh to you. You know the new meaning for Ayuh, don't you? Ask you basher buddy.
"Be careful what you wish for.
Ayuh to you."
As the song says: "wishing & hoping won't get you into his heart."
Neither wil drivel get you investment success. But then again Rimmbeciles don't lose money if they don't ever sell.
RIM made a big mistake pricing the 16GB/32GB/64GB Playbook at $499/$599/$699. I bought a non-4G 64GB Playbook at $299, that was a great deal (and an obvious part of the inventory writedown for RIM). Since I can bridge it with my Torch's data plan, 4G is a non-issue for me and other BB users - which is probably the only people buying Playbooks anyway. I'm long RIM, but they will sell very few of these at $549.
That price point will make eliminate it right from the start. RIMM needs to thing in the $299 price range to even have a chance against the Android Tablets, Kindle fires of the world. I am afraid the only chance RIMM has in this market is to sell at a loss to build up a user base to spur interest from app developers and make money on the back end through apps and advertising.
Dummy, the price is MSRP.
LTE Playbook MSRP price is lower than all other competitors.
Telco gives a contract price for a 3-year sign up. A high MSRP price makes it look like a good deal.
I anticipate $250-$300 with a 3-year contract.
Read before you speak.
Ayub to you.
I don't think the price will be a problem, blackberry play books are very decent and compatible with the rest of tablets. I believe the problem will be the lock of marketing and advertisement, like it was with original playbook . If rimm will invest and develop smart ad campaign, the 4G playbook will be successful, I believe.
