Blackberry Playbook Pricing | How Much Do Blackberry Playbooks Cost?


Everyone’s in knots waiting for the Blackberry Playbook pricing to be announced. Find out here how much Blackberry Playbooks cost for 16GB or 32GB models.

People love to speculate about how much something is going to cost after they catch their first glimpse of it. And there has been plenty of speculation about the Blackberry Playbook price on the Internet–no doubt about it.

But what it really comes down to is this: we don’t know.

The Blackberry Playbook tablet PC has yet to be released, and RIM (the makers of this Blackberry product) are keeping their lips sealed about how much it is eventually going to cost to purchase one.

So we can guess and estimate all we want about how many bones you’ll have to throw down to own one for yourself, but it won’t change the fact that we simply do not know.

That being said… let the speculation begin!

Blackberry Playbook Price: The Speculation

The first major spark of speculation comes from the unveiling of the prototype that happened earlier in the year, where it was revealed that there were two different kinds of Blackberry Playbook tablet PCs on display:

  • 16 Gigabyte model
  • 32 Gigabyte model

This makes sense as it compares to the tablet PC selection that is already available from Apple and others. It is still unclear as to whether or not they will be released with these two different storage sizes, or just the one, but for now we should assume that they will both be there.

So this means that we can expect to see two different amounts for Blackberry Playbook pricing: one much cheap than the other.

While RIM has kept particularly quiet about the exact price tag number for these devices, they have said that they will be priced competitively, which is our second major spark for speculation. This generally means that they will be priced right around the same as the iPad. But it doesn’t mean they will be cheaper. In Blackberry’s eyes (and in ours) the Playbook is far better than the iPad, which means that it could be more expensive, but still be considered competitive.

Bottom Line: Experts are saying that you can expect to spend anywhere between $500 and $1,000 for your new Blackberry Playbook tablet.

Blackberry Playbook Cost: Accessories

While the Blackberry Playbook pricing can be expected to be fairly high, costing you a mighty pretty penny, you don’t have to worry about spending a fortune on accessories, like:

Because tablet PCs are a fairly new product, manufacturers of Playbook 3rd party accessories are going out of their way to do their best to provide you the finest items and deals out there, all in order for them to be the top sellers in the market.

This means that you can save your money to get the more expensive Blackberry Playbook tablet (the 32 gigabyte model), because the case, skin, or cover will cost virtually nothing.
