Have you been wondering what the BlackBerry PlayBook’s price tag might be? Would it be cheaper or more expensive than its rival, the Apple iPad? Co-CEO Jim Balsillie filled the void with a round about figure.

In an interview in Seoul, Korea, Balsillie said the PlayBook will be ‘very competitively priced’ and that it should be ‘under’ $500 when released in Q1 of 2011.

If the PlayBook is truly under $500, is it more enticing to you?
