    RIM employees were given a pretty sweet employee pricing deal. With 5 PB per employee.

    Update: 16GB and 64GB are reportedly all sold out.

    Selling prices:

    16GB Playbook for $99
    32GB Playbook with HDMI cable for $149
    64GB Playbook with HDMI cable and Convertible Case for $199

    There are shipping, taxes, and other charges (not sure) on top of these prices.

    Limit is 5 per employee.

    PS Couldn't figure out how to notify the CrackBerry staff. Usually I just send stuff to MobileSyrup through a "Contact us" link.

    Not confirmed. Call up a RIM employee you know and try your luck.

    My hunch says it is.

    I can confirm that those are indeed the prices... I am not a RIM employee, but my friend is.. I picked up (through him) 3 16GB ones for Christmas presents

    Those are amazing prices! Unfortunately I asked my friends who are on co-op internships and the deal is only available to full time employees. Looks like I'll have to pick one up from Best Buy...

    I had on order since Monday last week with shopblackberry.com a 16g Playbook.
    Just got home and been delivered today a 32g for the same price. Crazy could not get one at BestBuy/FutureShop etc. and end up with a bigger capacity book. I am very happy!
