    Default Australia 16GB Playbook $289

    I just bought my 16GB BB Playbook for $289 at Harvey Norman, Australia.

    All sizes are on special till the end of the weekend.

    16GB $289 (although the internet site advises $294)

    32GB $347

    64GB $398

    Outright price and they're unbranded

    Default Damn!

    My wife had better not find this out. Actually, she told me a few weeks ago that it had already paid for itself. Hmmm, maybe a second 64gig model for her birthday. When did I gain a death wish?

    I didn't see your post and posted the same thing in another thread. I'm probably going to get one tomorrow. Pretty happy about this.

    Yeah I'm also stoked about the price ..... I've been continually checking all the usual web sites for some time and there hasn't been a lot of downward movement until today.

    We need to tell as many Aus as we can.

    After all the posts with best buy and staples in the states, do we seriously think that the people at Harvey Norman know what's going to continue or not? I think they've just jumped on the bandwagon of what's happening in the states.

    Dropped into my local HN this afternoon. They are calling it a "run out" sale as RIM are discontinuing the Playbook due to sales numbers.

    It's even advertised as that.... very interesting. I wonder what RIM have told them?

    I'm going to pick up a PB at Harvey Norman Ipswich this afternoon.

    I rang an reserved a unit - but the guy said "No need to rush. Since the Sale started we've had one enquiry about them but the guy never showed up. We haven't sold one in weeks".

    Whoa.

    Don't forget to pick up some of the playbook accessories that are on special whilst you're there.

    I think the 32 Gig is about $340 at HN. I don't need that space so settled for a 16GB today. I'll go back tomorrow - to a different store - for accessories. They had none at the store I went to today.

    A small indication of how much HN and RIM are pushing the Playbook. When I told the sales "duuude" that I wanted the PB he asked me three times if I were sure. He went out back to get the box, and when he saw the price of $294 he said "whoa, that's CHEAP for a tablet!". I said "yeah, it is" and stuck it under my arm and walked out.

    Well, back from a bit of a wasted drive. Went to three different Harvey Normans, and none had any accessories to speak of. One place has three silicon cases for the PB. That was it apart from a few screen protectors. No docks, or convertible cases which is what I'm after.

    I asked one guy if they'd sold out and he laughed and said they'd never had anything in.

    eBay, here I come.

    Picked up a 16GB one yesterday at the Auburn HN for $254 and I believe the 32GB ones were $312, so I'd get in quick. (if you don't live in the area, might be worth calling them and seeing if they have any in stock and get them to hold one for you rather than driving around)

    Lovin' the sale. When looking at the price of tablets I though I was going to have to wait a lot longer to get my PB. Made my weekend!

    Hi Kevin, I got my leather pouch and screen saver (on special) at the Caringbah (Sydney) store.

    They also had in stock the silicon cases and the convertible case - which I tested but decided on the leather pouch instead.

    On reflection I think I should've got the convertible case. Neither the convertible case nor the pouch were on special.

    If you look at the Harvey Norman website and search for blackberry playbook, all the items with prices marked in red are on special.
