If you were wondering what the price tag might be for the BlackBerry PlayBook, here is some fair tangible evidence pointing at $499.99 for 16GB version. We heard RIM co-CEO, Jim Balsillie, briefly mention it would be under $500. The Office Depot slide above also pegs the PlayBook’s release date at week 17, likely late March or early April. RIM is seems to really be pushing the PlayBook in as many places as possible. If you don’t like the $499 price tag, make sure you try your luck in our PlayBook giveaway!
