RIM to Sell BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet for Under $500 to Take on iPad

Research In Motion, RIM, unveiled their would-be iPad killer Blackberry Playbook, back in September during their annual Developer Conference. The 7-inch tablet boasts lots of new features we already covered before.

Early this morning, a BusinessWeek report claims that Blackberry Playbook will be sold under $500 to take on iPad. Here’s the official statement:

Research In Motion Ltd., the maker of the BlackBerry smartphone, said it will begin selling a tablet computer in North America in the first quarter for “under” $500 as it takes on Apple Inc.’s iPad.

“The product will be very competitively priced,” Co-Chief Executive Officer Jim Balsillie said in an interview in Seoul today, declining to be more specific. Sales of the BlackBerry Playbook, unveiled in September, will expand globally from the second quarter, he said.
