It’s been a while since Research In Motion made any sense, but today brings a real head-scratcher for you:
The fire sale of RIM’s struggling touchscreen tablet was first noted by Pocket-lint. The odd promotion features all PlayBook models available for the same price, meaning the high-end 64-gigabyte model can be had for the same price as the 16GB offering.
That means the savings are significantly bigger for the 64GB model, which usually sells for $699 but has been discounted by $400. The 32GB model is usually $599, a $300 savings, while the 16GB PlayBook has a regular price of $499, which leaves its savings at $200.
Nobody is in charge over there.
