16GB Wi-Fi BlackBerry PlayBook available for $159 at Staples

People who are looking for a tablet, often face difficulty in finding a cheap, yet a tablet that can do all they intend to do on it. Therefore, if you are looking for a cheap 7 inch tablet and do not mind if it has a BlackBerry logo on it, then you should purchase the BlackBerry PlayBook, which is now available at a steep discount.

Yes, this is true; the BlackBerry PlayBook is available for an amazingly low price at Staples Canada today. It is a so called one-day “Sunday Door Crasher” sale today, which is offering people with a 16 GB WiFi only model of BlackBerry PlayBook for a price of just $159. Although, there is a newer version of the BlackBerry PlayBook available that has 4G LTE connectivity, but you can learn to live without 4G data, just as well by tethering the tablet to your smart phone’s internet connection as and when you need it.

The offer by Staples Canada is too good to be true, and it is true. So, if I were you, I would not wait to get one for myself.

The BlackBerry PlayBook has been around for a few months now and it is a good tablet with reasonable specs. Let us do get an overview of this tablet once again, just to let people know what they are actually going to get when then benefit from Staples Canada’s offer.

The good thing about the RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook is that, it is a fast and powerful 7 inch tablet. This tablet also features an HDMI output, and has advanced multitasking and security features to keep your data protected. Moreover, it features a browser that integrates Adobe Flash 10.2, which gives users a desktop styled web experience on their BlackBerry PlayBook.

The cons about the RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook include, the 7 inch screen, which cramps the powerful browser. The wake button on the BlackBerry PlayBook is difficult to push and if that is not enough then you have the app selection trials the competition.

Overall, the BlackBerry PlayBook is a very powerful tablet, but its middle size diminishes many of its best features, which can limit a user’s experience to somewhat normal on this tablet, when it could have been amazing if it was not for its size. However, RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook clearly shows how powerful the new mobile operating system is and how beneficial it can be. But we will have to wait and see it in action on other RIM devices in order to get a better feel of it, because the 7 inch tablet clearly does not shows how far it can go.

However, since the BlackBerry PlayBook is available for a price of $159 only, you should definitely get it because it is the best price you can pay for a really fast tablet. There are other 7 inch tablet options also available to you, like the Google’s Nexus 7, but in order to have that, you will have to spend a little more money. The question is will Blackberry be able to reclaim its lost market share with this product?
