    Looks like a great deal, and definitely great advertising for RIM (300 Groupons bought so far isn't half bad!) I'm definitely happy to see companies signing on to help out get the QNX/future BB10 experience out into consumers hands. I would jump on this, but Staples is currently selling the 64 GB version for $189 so I'll likely get that, or wait until Black Friday to see if the price drops even more.

    I guess it makes it look like a better deal if they keep the original $599 list price in there!

    These are still $149.99 for a 32 gigger in Canada from Futureshop.ca, Bestbuy.ca and TheSource.ca BlackBerry 32GB PlayBook | BlackBerry PlayBooks | Ratings & Reviews | TheSource.ca

    64 giggers are going for $199.99. Check out the bundle prices too for they are pretty decent.

    Agreed, this would have been a great deal about a year ago and even a real good deal about 6 months ago, but now, not such a great deal.

    Thanks!!

    I did a ton of reading as soon as I ordered it online.....lol I don't like not knowing the basics so while I wait for it to show up at my house, I'm gonna be reading the threads here. I've been looking through the apps forum too for suggestions. I haven't used BB in a long time (had a 9630 a while back) so it's actually kind of fun getting to know the OS again
