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.
Earlier 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
