Buy This Now On Amazon

PlayBook Tablet Price slashing begins.

We already carried a report two weeks ago that the BlackBerry PlayBook could be the next tablet offered in a fire sale. We are not quite there yet, but it is a start. CNET spotted a Best Buy listing of the BlackBerry Plabook with 16GB for $299.99 instead of $499.99. On Amazon the PlayBook is sold for $350. The problem on the Best Buy listing is that the PlayBook is backordered and shipping estimate is 1-2 weeks.

I would though rather save another $100 and buy the new Kindle Fire. Both tablets are actually pretty similar in terms of hardware. The software is of course very different. The PlayBook runs QNX, which is the future of BlackBerry and Kindle Fire runs Kindle OS based on Android core. You can pre-order the Kindle Fire Tablet now on Amazon.com. It will ship on November 15.
