BlackBerry PlayBook is on Sale starting at $499

Apparently RIM thinks the PlayBook is ready.

The BlackBerry Playbook is now on sale on the BlackBerry site and at retailers Best Buy, Office Depot, OfficeMax and Staples. The 16GB PlayBook sells for $499. For the 32GB Playbook the price is $599 and top of the line 64GB Playbook sells for $699.

The PlayBook reviews a week ago painted a picture of an unfinished product. It looks like RIM is now confident that the PlayBook will work well enough for the first customers.

Adam Zeis over at CrackBerry found a hick-up for AT&T users. The BlackBerry Bridge is not supported. There is a work around, but of course this is not smooth sailing. BlackBerry Bridge is necessary to connect your BlackBerry to the PlayBook. This basically an essential feature of the PlayBook. Why RIM did not take care on working this out with AT&T before the launch is puzzling.

Find the BlackBerry PlayBook on sale on the BlackBerry site.
