The BlackBerry PlayBook has been seen as a disappointment ever since its debut back in the days and even now when it’s priced at the very low $300, it’s still not selling. The thing is that RIM has been hit by a lot of problems recently, including a bad outage that resulted in a class action lawsuit in the US and now the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 is delayed… Thus, only a hot offer can save the device.

For example, buying two PlayBooks and getting one free is such an offer and it actually sounds pretty good. This is a business discount program, that allows a customer to buy two units of the 7 inch tablet and get one for free. The program takes place till December 31st and is only available to the US market at the time. We’re not yet sure that the $300 priced PlayBook enters this promotion, of if only the $500 one does…

The second option makes more sense and you must know that you’ll also get a premium accessory for free: your choice of a Black Leather sleeve, Charging pod or 6 feet HDMI cable. Let’s just hope that you won’t be buying this product as a memory of what RIM once was, since there’s a chance that this is their last tablet…

    It’s just marketing.. 🙂 All sizes are in promotion. But the prices for 16Gb form is 499 USD at the Blackberry partners for small business. And if you buy 2+1 of the 16 Gb the final price is 339 USD- the same as the price for a 16 Gb Playbook at Amazon 🙂
