This coming Sunday, August 19th, Staples Canada will be offering the 16GB BlackBerry PlayBook at a heavily discounted price. Staples Canada had the 16GB PlayBook originally listed at $179.00, but in their stock reduction sale they’ve lowered the price to $159.00!

Staples doesn’t mention how great of overstock there is, but customers are able to purchase the PlayBook online and in-store. Customers are only allowed 2 units per customer. This is a near steal, as it is close in functionality to the recently launched 4G PlayBook. The PlayBook will also receive BlackBerry 10 upgrade for free later in 2013.

Check out the deals at and let us know if you pick up a 16GB PlayBook!
