BlackBerry fire sale to hit UK?
Could we be on the cusp of some really good deals on Research in Motion (RIM) products? If the States are anything to go by, we could well be seeing something of a fire sale as prices of BlackBerry handsets and PlayBook tablets are slashed in a bid to reverse the company's fortunes after a pretty lousy 2011.
According to reports, all models of the BlackBerry PlayBook will cost a paltry $299 in the USA. And prices are slowly dropping in the UK, with Amazon knocking £60 off the price of the 16GB model and decent deals seen elsewhere.
Of course, RIM has Apple and Android to compete with who are taking the market by storm.
The company is obviously taking notes from HP’s book, who managed to offload huge numbers of their doomed TouchPad tablet. HP saw their marketshare rocket after such a move.
Sadly from Research in Motion, 2012 is starting as 2011 finished. Could they really be doomed? Regardless, it looks like we could all be looking at some rather good bargains soon. Definitely one to keep an eye on.
