    Drop by my local Future shop and was surprised to see all the unsold PBs. No wonder RIM is discounting them. How many more does RIM have in stock?

    haha oops silly me i just looked at my boxes and yeah they were blue.
    hmmm what do you guys think of those many playbooks 16GB playbooks?

    16GB vs 32GB and 64GB's not that hard which one you would pick.

    They had that promotion for a while where all 3 models were selling at the same price... It only makes sense that everyone snapped up the higher end models and we would be left with the 16GBs.

    Northland in Calgary.

    They have about dozen of 32gb in the locked shelve. Went around the corner to Best Buy and nothing there. Just two demo units. Both FS and Best Buy had their PB display front and center so there is exposure.

    Agreed... at least for the 64's... no Future Shop had them in stock a few weeks ago in cowtown when I was looking. Plenty of 16 and 32's at the time though...

    At DevCon Europe either Thorsten or Alec said there are 25000 tablets reserved for developer conferences and other conferences. Without an accurate number of registered tablets we will never know anything about sales estimates.

    The Future Shop up by Costco in north Calgary had about 100 x 16 GB playbooks visible in a lock-up in the tablet section when I was there yesterday. Strangely, they didn't have even ONE playbook on display, anywhere. Makes me wonder how they expect to sell these things...

    It's not an overstock many store managers have been placing new orders but it's an internal thing from store to store not a chain wide decision.

    This is one of those many aisle centre kiosks, did notice the name. Not a known carrier banner, the sales person mentioned they were representing 6 different companies (?). Funny that they did not have it on display, but the guy got excited when I mentioned the PB, and that's when he got one out of the locked drawer. Sorry I could provide more details, the boss was waiting and I had to leave in a hurry. But the lesson is that these gems may not be on display, but hidden somewhere in locked drawers. You simply have to take a chance and ask ......
