BlackBerry PlayBook prices in AustraliaJuly 1, 2011 0 Comments
RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook tablet went on sale in Australia on 20 June 2011. It is available at Harvey Norman, and also from BlackBerry Australia's online store (although all models are currently out of stock). The carriers Telstra, Optus and Vodafone plan to sell the tablet at some point, although it is not currently available with 3G or 4G connectivity so their ability to upsell data plans is limited at present. Vodafone sells the PlayBook bundled with a BlackBerry smartphone.
Pricing in Australia matches the iPad 2's Wi-Fi only prices: $579 for 16GB, $689 for 32GB and $799 for the 64GB model. As with the iPad 2, this is higher than the US pricing for equivalent models of US$499 for 16GB, US$599 for 32GB and US$699 for the 64GB.
