    Trying to find a playbook to purchase. Anyone have any suggestions? Office Depot, Best Buy, and Staples are all out.

    eBay and Amazon both have them.

    Think the current PlayBook is EOL and once Amazon and eBay sell out their stock... they will be gone. Last time I looked Amazon only had a few of the 32GB models and they were cheaper than the 16GB.

    Best Buy still has them, and if your local store doesn't, you can still do a ship to store purchase from their website.

    Walmart had some online, but my friend who ordered hers through there a few weeks ago still hasn't received it... though it is in transit now I believe.

    They come and go on Amazon from various sellers, various prices and availability. I finally gave in and just ordered when I saw an "In Stock" (and Amazon Prime) 32 GB pop up, and it worked out great... got it next day $180ish was more than most places were selling it, but I got tired of trying to find one elsewhere.

    Go for the bundle deals from TheSource.ca. You are going to need a rapid charger down the road, might as well save now.

    Yeah noticed the Wal' offering of 32gb/$128cdn this a.m. on the front page of this wks hard copy flyer !

    Good luck finding one in your vicinity 'cause i chkd a couple of their (YYC) outlets over the last 2-3 wks and even their demo was missing (although like a staples outlet possibly theft) .
    Will be in at least one outlet tomorrow, will chk their availability !

    That said Wal' may have recently been resupplied like Staples was for their recent sale {so shared last wk. by one of the staples sales reps who coincidentally is a enthusiastic bb phone/pb and cb user !!}

    I just checked all 9 Walmarts with 100km of me. They all say...."not likely in stock" .....That sucks, because it's a great price.

    Don't know the GBs you want but here's one place where you may still find one. Sure they'll be more resellers clearing stock as the holiday gets closer. Hope this helps.

    I believe the OP is asking for sellers in the US. For some reason, and I don't know why, prices for devices and bundles seem to be cheaper in Canada. For example, that ad shown in this thread is a Canadian ad, not from the States.

    Think site I posted for OP is in U.S. Don't know why prices are cheaper in Canada (devices/bundles) like the ad from Walmart. I know my area store (very small) here in U.S never, ever carried anything RIM.

    Yes the ad shown, is Walmart Canada. Not sure why there are so many Canadian deals lately.

    BTW...It's hard to tell where OPs are from when that info is not given in their profile or post

    Is there a difference between PBs for U.S. and Canada? If so, will those from Canada work in U.S. and vice versa? Do canadian resllers even ship to U.S. customers? I've noticed a few canadian listings on eBay for PBs but am not sure if they're from actual re-sellers.

    Agreed when OPs don't give location info it don't help much (providing it's not a troll posting). I hate that.

    I was on a trip recently and bought a PB in Ireland to take home with me to the US. Works perfectly.

    Gah, posting from my phone. Sorry.

    Meant to finish by saying that it doesnt seem to matter what country you buy from.

    Also, checked my local WallyWorld ad and 32g in stock for $169.

    Some others might speak up, but I am unaware of any differences between PBs for the US and those for Canada. I live near the border, and quite frequently vacation in the US. My PB works like a champ wherever I take it.

    I have ordered many different things on Ebay.com, eBay.ca, Amazon.com and Amazon.ca, and others without any problems. Just find the right sellers that are willing to ship across the border. I am sure anything can be shipped for the right price
