    Hi,

    With no reliable info available on the PBs production status or no news coming from the upstream supply chain (nothing that am aware of), may be we can get some idea if people could post some basic info about their PB purchase.

    The date of manufacture is on the white sticker on the side of the PBs packaging. Its a 6 digit number in format DDMMYY at the bottom of the sticker underneath where it says "Accessories Made in China".

    Please post info in the following format:

    Month of Purchase; Source; model/price paid; date of manufacture

    Here's mine:

    Bought Dec 2011; from SBB; 16G for 189; 16th June 2011

    Thanks.

    RIM may be trying to deplete 64GB stock while meanwhile making just enough 16GB units to meet orders for those while it winds everything down. The latest push is only to sell the 64GB Playbook (charging the same price for 16GB and 32GB models sends its own message); and I haven't seen any recent manufacture date for a 64GB Playbook. Does anyone have one?

    ya, i couldn't believe it when i saw it, not even a month old when i got it. bought it online from bestbuy.ca after christmas. they ran out of stock before christmas so that must have been from a brand new shipment

    Yep! Definitely replenished inventory; fresh off the assembly line!
    Well, congratulations and enjoy the amazing PB

    I am curious to see if more folks report freshly minted PBs like yours....

    Thanks!
