THE BLACKBERRY PLAYBOOK price is down to a mere £150 at UK retailer PC World, as the retailer struggles to shift the last of its stock.

playbook-angle-3Earlier this year the 32GB Blackberry Playbook, which is struggling to compete against the Apple Ipad and cheap Android offerings, was priced at £199 at the British retailer. Now PC World has drastically lowered the price to just £149.00 SIM free - cheaper than the 16GB Google Nexus 7.

Although Research in Motion (RIM) is struggling to shift its remaining Playbook tablets, possibly ahead of the launch of a 4G model later this year, £149 is a decent price considering the device's specifications.

For handing over your spare pocket money you'll get a tablet running RIM's Blackberry Tablet QNX operating system that includes security features, built-in messaging tools and the ability to run Android applications.

The Playbook also has a 7in 600x1024 resolution touchscreen, a dual-core processor, a 5MP rear-facing camera, a 3MP video-calling camera, WiFi connectivity and a 5300mAh battery. µ
