    Arrow Blackberry.com Is Now Selling the PB's....

    ....from their web site at the $199, $299, and $399 price ranges. If you missed out at your fave retailers, now is the time to jump on it. Like a "duh" me that I am, I ordered a 32 GB model for my daughter.

    Default Great Info

    Thanks for the heads up. Kevin should post this front and center. No running all over town to find one, plus nice fresh stock with the better power buttons hopefully. Been reading where people are buying open box specials for a few bucks less. Too risky in my opinion.

    Anybody have any luck buying one from shop.Blackberry? I was able to put it into the cart, but the checkout does not seem to be working.

    I get :

    The connection was reset

    The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

    I bought mine (32G) version online from Walmart a couple of days ago, since they (and all other retailers) had sold out of both the 16G and 32G versions. I'm glad RIM is selling it on blackberry.com now ... the site says the sale ends Dec. 1, limit of 3 per customer.
    I'm anxiously waiting the arrival ...

    Maybe the demand is too high to handle all the traffic ...

    I had no problems ordering the 32 gig model; I got a confirmation notice of my order, and just waiting for info on when it has shipped. It could be the site is overwhelmed, since I believe most folks would rather buy it from BB then anywhere else.

    I tried it with a different browser and I was able to put the order through.

    Just as a fyi for Canadian buyers, it looks like the store is based near Boston and they ship from the USA. I thought it was odd when the choice for shipping was International shipping at about $60 or free ground. I chose free, lets hope I don't get hit with brokerage fee. Also with the US base, I wonder when they will ship with the holiday tomorrow.

    I just tried to get on the site; apparently it's overwhelmed by the demand. I found out they're having a pick 2 accessories for $50.00 sale (I want the charge dock and leather convertible case), and I too can't get anywhere.

    Hopefully long enough for me to get on line and make a purchase.

    I wouldn't recommend getting the dock with a leather case. The case makes the combination too thick to fit onto the charging dock, trust me I made the mistake.. I ended up returning the dock and getting the rapid "travel" charger. Its in quotations because its actually quite a bit larger than the standard charger. It charges quickly and uses a magnetic clasp to attach onto the pb, so I would recommend that for home and keeping the standard one for travel.

    Try using a different browser. In my case I was using Firefox Aurora and when I went to Safari I was able to order and check out.

    BTW, the code posted a few messages up, 09OLTY12 , up was for $10 off. I had already completed the process before seeing the code. I tried purchasing one this morning and the system worked and the code gave $10 off. I didn't complete the purchase and removed the PlayBook from my cart, so I don't know if there will be a hangup later in the payment process. I was on the Canadian store.

    Placed an order on the 32gb PB using the code. On the Canadian site , taxes were applied and with free shipping the total came to about $13 less than the same order on Futureshop. I went ahead and cancelled my Futureshop order (they only charge you once it starts shipping).

    One thing too, it'll only accept one promotion code (the most recent applied) so if you add a code for the accessories (buy one get the 2nd for 50% off ), it'll cancel the $10 off code on the PB. If you want to use both codes I suppose placing 2 separate orders might work tho I can't say for sure - never tried.

    I got an email from RIM about this whole $300 off sale on the 20th... I thought that's what sparked everyones posts about the PB going on sale. I just thought it was strange/big bonus that Best Buy had the 64GB for $229.99. I also noticed this morning that the list of "Where to buy" is shorter then when I got the email back on the 20th. I am just going to get the 64GB from RIM.
