    I was over at my friends house last night as we have a function coming up to organize. I brought my playbook because I have the info from previous year's functions on it. I was showing him some of the stuff I'm doing with it and he was loving it even though he said everything in his house was Apple. He's not really a tech guy so would be mostly be using for surf stuff and maybe use the docs for some of the info he needs to keep track of as he is a sole proprietor distributor/sales. I told him what I paid for mine and he couldn't believe it - being used to buying every thing Apple for his kids. I told him he probably won't get for what I paid but if we can find them in stores around here may not cost excessively much more.
    I don't want him getting one without a warranty.
    So,.calling or checking the stores websites are futile as per my experiences, can some of you let me know if I would be waste my time by going into store after store down here. I get the impression, from what I ve read here lately that they aren't being re stock in stores? Anyone hqve some recent experience?

    Thanks

    Rarely, someone stumbles upon one languishing in some dusty shelf or corner. They are pretty much out of retail store circulation. Online is really where it is found now. Good luck

    Instead of going store to store just call them up. You just might be able to find one randomly perhaps from Walmart. I doubt you can find any at The Source, Business Depot, Future Shop and Best Buy. The quickest way is from Ebay or Amazon. Tiger Direct has some but pricing is not as good as the one randomly pop up on other site.

    The further away from major cities the better chance of getting one. Even perhaps the East Coast or middle of the country.

    I am a online retailer in Europe and I have 50 new 64GB Wifi units still in retail boxed sealed and new.

    I am not on here to try sell them, but I responded to this to say we have some in stock and can ship Worldwide to help any Blackberry Playbook fans out.

    I purchased the Playbooks hoping the BB10 would come the Playbook. I expect a jump in price if it does. But for now I am willing to help anyone out.

    Regards
