BestBuy.com showing inaccurate Playbook specs
Its really annoying to see this type of stuff on a major retailer's website. I'm a big Playbook fan and naturally, I want it to do well in the market place and take over the tablet world...but it really grinds my gears to see that the Best Buy website can't even get the most general of specifications right.
According to the website, The BlackBerry Playbook DOES NOT support Adobe Flash...what?!?! I'm sure there are tons of people who see this and take it as gospel, just because its on the Best Buy website. Really annoying!
I sent them an email notifying them of the mistake. Maybe it's just a big conspiracy theory to kill the PB...any thoughts?WINNER! WINNER! CHICKEN DINNER!

As a BestBuy consumer, I have been very disappointed in their approach concerning the PlayBook. Their sub par performance since its release is SAD and should be addressed at a higher level between them and RIM. In my area I have 3 BestBuy's and on release day and about a week later the PlayBook wasn't even on display, I had to ask for it and the sales rep went into a cabinet handed it to me and left. As I've read in these forums it seems that majority of the BestBuys are treating the PlayBook the same way ......

I emailed them and posted in their forums last week and I was told by an admin that he had notified them of the incorrect information and that they were going to correct it. still wrong though as of now

Very disappointed in BestBuy! I was at one of their stores today buying an apple charger for my MacBook (as my 14 month old adapter just died, but that is another story) and decided to look at their PlayBook display and was surprised to see 3 units on display, a 16/32 and 64 G. I proceded to wake up the first unit on display and it was stuck on the wifi configuration stage and could not find a wifi connection there for was useless. I proceed to the other 2 units only to find that they were not powered and not functioning. Seeing the PB's in this state was disappointing, these are great tablets and BestBuy has totally neglected them. How on earth does BestBuy expect to sell any??? This experience not only makes RIM look bad, but I have very little faith in BestBuy because of it.
RIM you make a great product but with retailers like this BestBuy location promoting your product, you have bigger problems than just competition from Apple and Android.
