    Hopefully this isn't a misprint, but they seem to have taken my order. They are selling the 64GB Playbook at the same price they are charging for the 16GB one!

    BLACKBERRY PlayBook Tablet PC - 64 GB buy online | Currys

    When you go onto the Curry's homepage you also see a big advertisement for it at that price too, so surely not an accident!

    I've joined the Blackberry Playbook club through the same deal yesterday Brilliant deal. So far I'm very impressed, especially the quality of video playback. My only problem with it is that I can't seem to get the GPS apps to get a fix on my location. Other than that, it's a fantastic bit of kit.

    Yep, I bought another two yesterday @ 129 each! That's a couple of early Christmas presents sorted out.... Hopefully will arrive sometime next week.
    Note for our US friends - consumer prices in the UK always include the tax, so for each 64Gb PB I paid (107.50 + 21.50 tax = 129)

    Hey, great buy you did there

    I bought a 16gb in June for 220 :s

    About the GPS, did you tried it outdoors? Sometimes it takes some time to get your position.

    Try downloading "GPS Test" from app world, go outside and try it.


    Again, congratz on your purchase

    Beta 2.1 handles gps better. Outside or at the windows be patient. Some apps available which keep trying (search) and bear in mind once it's fixed your location the first time it's very fast after that.

    Cheers Pedro. I already installed GPS test and it just reads 'retrieving position'. I will try outside later today.

    On edit. Position located

    I bought a 64gb as same price as 16gb. Office Depot staff were great and I gave my wife the 16gb. She is so happy as she can now use her own. Great tablet.

    Got one from Currys today. Almost put off by how heavy it is compared to the Nexus 7. But 129 for is too good to pass up, been very impressed so far.
