    Default PC World selling Official Playbook Desk Charger - £4.99

    A few in Oxford Botley Road so got one.
    Now why can't PCW do a similar deal on the case and mini keyboard????
    Also price of PB 64GB dropped by £5.

    Thanks to this thread I managed to purchase two today... One for the office and one for home.

    Downloaded FlipClock Glow from AppWorld to create a great bedside clock! :-)

    Cheers!

    Just unplug mains from back of charging pod.

    I bought mine on Christmas Eve.. I was in there picking up a playbook with my father-in-law who was buying it for my mother-in-law for xmas

    so bad news... I now have the mother-in-law constantly available for video chat...

    good news... picked up a dirt cheap charging pod which is shared between me, my wife and our son!

    now if the in-laws are viewing this on their shiny new playbook..... I'm only kidding

    Hi, just picked one up, finally have a stand to put my Playbook on when travelling on long train journeys! Was going to buy a second one for my desk at the office but after reading that a few people missed out because their local PC World sold out of them I felt guilty about depriving someone else of a charging pod so just got one for home.

    For anyone in the South West London/Surrey area, I went to the New Malden store near Wimbledon/Kingston, and they had about 6 or 7 left (head to the tablet section and they're stacked up next to the Playbooks on display)

    I wouldn't feel guilty about buying an extra one for something you'll validly use - or even as a spare - I suspect there will be pockets of them in areas, and cleaned out in other areas. It's the people who clear the shelves and buy loads to sell on at a profit that irk me - it's not like it's some business model they're supporting, it's just opportuinism, when the same people are more than likely members of community forums like this.

    I bought one, and I probably wouldn't have bothered at normal or even half normal price, as I already have the travel rapid charger, and wasn't going to bother with the stand / desk one. I also bought one for my parents who also have a PlayBook. I don't feel guilty about that - the store I bought mine from had, at a guess around 5 still visible hanging on the shelf stand.

    No, because they are trickle chargers.

    I've called PCW and they can't see any in stock near me. (South East - UK)

    In case anyone's interested got dragged to Cribbs Causeway this afternoon (**** on earth!), but did pop into PC World there. The whole PB accessories section was stripped bare! Its the only place i've seen where the charger had a markup of £4.99, but all gone (no surprises there!). So that's 4 of 4 around Bristol which have been stripped!

    Spoken with the store Manager today

    Sadly once they have sold out they will either not be re-stocked or will return to full price.

    Great that I helped so many get one! But sorry to all that missed out.

    He did say they are selling like crazy
