Staff at all branches of IKEA in the U.K. have received an early gift from their employer in the form of a 64GB BlackBerry PlayBook. If you follow UK BlackBerry on Twitter, you may have seen them tweet that they were delighted to hear that IKEA gifted their UK staff with a BlackBerry PlayBook. A quick search and you'll find staff members thanking their employers for the awesome gift. Even friends of people who received one are tweeting on how nice it was for them to receive one.
We’re delighted to hear that IKEA treated all of their staff to a #PlayBook for Christmas! Happy Friday everyone!— BlackBerry UK (@UK_BlackBerry) December 14, 2012
It certainly is an awesome gesture. There are around 19 IKEA stores in the U.K., with around 4000 staff. So that's 4000 happy PlayBook users today. It certainly is a great way to "Believe in BlackBerry".
