Hearing the word on the street, it was anyone’s guess it was only a matter of time before a ‘firesale’ would begin on the BlackBerry PlayBook. The production lines in Tawian were cut in half due to excess stock of the PlayBook with its low demand. But, if you’ve been holding out to get the BlackBerry tablet you might be interested to know it has been reduced in price by 50%!

Walmart Canada has begun quietly selling the 16GB BlackBerry PlayBook for only $249.99. We heard similar pricing was available for only Rogers and Telus employees, but seems Walmart is seriously rolling back prices. It will be interesting to see how low other retailers begin to slash the PlayBook’s price. Will this new cheaper price make you pick one up?
