    Just a thought...

    One of the biggest deterrents right now (as I see it) from people purchasing the PB is that they don't own a BB. Wouldn't it make sense for RIM to offer deep discounts on the PB for people buying BB7 or BB10 devices going forward?

    I think this would attract people to adopt BB again and sell PB's. Win win! With the new features coming in OS2 (the BB remote for PB is amazing) I can't imagine people won't be interested.

    Thoughts?

    I kind of like the idea however I would think the Playbooks are tapped out as far as discount is concerened.

    I agree, but I also saw a stat lately that RIM has only sold like 800,000 or so of the 1.5 mil playbooks made. I thought that they probably have a store that they will relaunch after OS 2.0. I can't imagine how this awesome product can be priced so low, especially after the upgrade.

    The first generation playbooks are tapped out for sure...but the playbook 2 they can and should absolutely implement some discounts like this!

    Excellent idea, the bad part is I have 18 months left on my contract. Definitely would like a PB one way or the other though.

    Rogers did something like you suggested with the GalaxyTab. If you signed up for two samsung Galaxy phones, they gave you the tablet.
