Pick up a BlackBerry Playbook for $199 in Sprint's After Christmas Sale

BlackBerry PlayBook on sale at Sprint
By Michelle Haag on 14 Dec 2011 07:55 pm EST

Waiting until after Christmas to make purchases on big ticket items can really pay off, since a lot of retailers have sales to clear out unsold merchandise. If you're still in the market for a BlackBerry PlayBook and missed out on some of the sales that were recently underway, you can head on over to Sprint between 12/26/11 and 1/7/12 and pick one up for just $199.99. Since the tablet is considered an accessory, you don't need to worry about being a Sprint customer or contracts. If Santa doesn't leave a PlayBook under your tree this year, do you plan on taking advantage of future sales and buying one? Thanks for sending this in Mark!

I would like to find another one for before Christmas!


I was unable to get in on the last deal. Hopefully I can grab a Playbook this time.


i missed the deal at Best Buy, i HAVE TO HAVE IT....im going to start saving now to get it!!!!

this is the best news i have heard today!!!!!


Looking forward to getting one.


Missed the deals last time .. Hopefully I can get it this time!!


Thank you, sprint! I just may have to get in on this. I want a PlayBook so bad. On a side note; am I hearing correctly that there will be another PlayBook being released? Or is it just a software update...? I know everyone is waiting patiently for 2.0. I read so many of these threads, so there's a good chance I'm just getting my facts mixed up haha


I have a 64g PB under the tree. Eleven more days till I'm allowed to tear into it. My wife tortures me so..


Mine is sitting underneath the tree also. Don't know if I can make it till xmas.


Hi @mercenarycat and @panterarck,

Alex from RIM here. Only ten more days to go – you can do it! My wife bought me Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which I can’t open until the big morning, so I feel your pain. Thankfully, I do get to use my PlayBook now. To quench your thirst for the PlayBook, check out this interactive guide that will bring you up to speed in no time: http://bbry.lv/fbcgeG. It features a variety of “how to” demos – from learning touch screen gestures to an overview of the PlayBook’s multitasking abilities. These will ensure you’re making the most of your BlackBerry PlayBook experience right out of the box. Enjoy!

Doesn't this just Osborne the PB until after Christmas? How is that a good thing?


So. . . .which one is it? 16? 32? Maybe even 64?

It would be safe to assume it's the 16GB.

I knew I'd see another company selling it for $199.99 again...what a great price for a sexy tablet.

I bought mine prior to Dec 1/11, never turned back....just love it.


Yes PB is pretty awesome at $199


Hopefully they don't have a 1 per customer limit. I intend to get 3 if they have enough. I kicked myself for not getting them when they were on sale. I already have a 64GB, the three I want to get are for relatives.


I would like to get one, but also wonder if there will be an updated version due soon.


...and do what with it?


Do they have Skype for the PB?


only on playbook 2.0 beta version
