The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is officially available tomorrow and there are over 20 retailers waiting to open their doors for you to drop your hard earned cash with them. Sears and Staples Canada did a fine job at leaking information over the past couple months and they both have set up some swanky promos to have you shop with them.
Staples previously stated in a release that stores will open up at midnight has now come back with saying that most “stores will open doors that day at 7:00 a.m.”. In addition, Staples will have “Easy Tech technicians” on the store floor so you’ll be “ready to Play”.
Sears Canada took a more creative route and sounds like a better way to purchase. Sears is opening their doors at 8:00am and will a “BlackBerry lounge” where you can try out the PlayBook before you purchase it. In addition, Sears is going a couple steps ahead and offering a financing option where you’ll have 90 days to pay for the PlayBook along with a “15 day no hassle” return policy.
The PlayBook is available at the same price across all retailers for $499.99 for the 16GB PlayBook with Wi-Fi $599.99 for the 32GB PlayBook with Wi-Fi is and $699.99 for the 64GB PlayBook with Wi-Fi.
