Playbook is product of the day on the shopping chanel
Just flipping through the tv and the pb is the deal of the day on the shopping channel in Canada. There is a RIM employee pushing it. 32 giger, soft shell case, zip sleeve, HTMI cable for 288.33.
Is it just me or does this drop the face value of the pb. They are talking about Orlando and BB10 updates, seems to be filmed today or is live.

Anything that gets more Playbooks out there is fine by me.
Is there anywhere you can see how many have been sold, like they put on TV?
Edit: Nevermind, I found the "Watch It Live" button. 24 sold as of now. Pretty good demo being given too, showing Zinio, etc.

I have been watching since 10, and you know what it is a pretty good presentation of the playbook. Ian is doing a good job. In 18 minutes they have sold 25 units. That is pretty good I think. They are really showing off the true multi-tasking abilities.

mine was 64GB PB, Convertible Case, CHARGING DOCK, HDMI Cable... for $30 over the price of JUST the PLAYBOOK!
EDIT: mine also said it would come with the soft shell and zipper case (which would have been probably the best tech deal of all time), but it didnt and when I called them to complain they said they would 'exchange' it but that all the bundles were the same and that it was an error... even though I have emails by two different people confirming that it would come with everything I posted above PLUS the zip/soft cases. But for the price, I wasnt going to complain. The Dock alone is worth $30 AT LEAST

I've posted here several times where they told the same customer they had a bad screen because it had a red glow in the corner and they would've gave her a 3rd if we had not told her why it was there.__________________________________________________ __________________________

I think this is a good chance to demo the product and agree that it opens the Playbook up to a very wide audience. I do not think that it devalues the Playbook in anyway as we recently bought a Keurig coffee machine off of one such TV show and is was a bargain for the bundled extras. That's how these shows work - bundled accessories.

Wow that's kinda cool. I don't watch the shopping channel so I have no idea if over 1000 products sold of anything is good, but I didn't know that many people even watched the shopping channel. Sounds like the guy from RIM did a great job showing what the PB can do.BlackBerry 10...the future of mobile technology, today!.
