    Yesterday, I purchased a mini keyboard for my PB from Crackberry for $119.95 Cdn. + tax for a total of $135.54.
    Today, while searching for a wireless or bluetooth rearview camera for our RV I was sent to a site that had laptops, phones etc. There were also some accessories available, one being the same keyboard for the PB for $39.99
    SO WHAT GIVES CRACKBERRY ????

    Likely not the same case. There have been others available that cover the bezel partially (or to a large extent) that are made for other 7" tablets. These will work (after a fashion) on the Playbook, but are not the same as the RIM case.

    Umm that's the RIM MSRP and legit. I bet if you buy it from that place, either A you won't get the keyboard or B you will get a knock off RIM keyboard

    In my search for keyboards, I realized I had to pay particular close attention; the 1st thing I noticed was no trackpad.

    RIM's keyboard is currently available at The Source in Canada for $99. A couple of weeks ago The Source had it for $89. I picked one up. Works as advertised but I'm used to the virtual keyboard now and can type faster on it (in portrait) than on this keyboard. The keyboard does not do autocorrect or suggest the next word. I never thought I would say this but I really like that feature and miss it when using this keyboard. Still deciding whether to keep or return.

    I typically research around before buying anything from anywhere..
    Usually if a seller is selling something and it is "too good to be true" then it is very much likely that it is indeed not true :P
