The BlackBerry PlayBook Was The #1 Selling Tablet at Future Shop and Best Buy

Comments

Haters are gonna hate but RIM is doing an excellent job pushing out the PlayBook. BlackBerry’s Twitter account recently announced that the PlayBook was the number 1 selling tablet at both Future Shop and Best Buy. This is great news for consumers, developers and for the BlackBerry 10 platform. We’re hoping that these sales entice more developers to get on board and start building great apps for the tablet and BlackBerry 10. Speaking of developers, RIM also announced that they’ve had more than 6,200 apps with 3,000 pending review as of Feb 29th.

Rogers BlackBerry Bold 9780 Available from Future Shop at $149.99 on 3 Year

blackberry bold 9780

The Rogers BlackBerry Bold 9780 is currently listed on the Future Shop website at $149.99 on a 3 year contract. The Bold 9780 is the same look and feel as the 9700, except it has a small spec boost, a better 5MP camera, and it ships with BlackBerry 6. It should be interesting to see how well this smartphone sells, considering the Curve 3G is going for $49.99 on a 3 year, and the 9700 is $99 on a 3 year. With the BlackBerry 6 upgrade coming anyways, is a 5MP camera important to you versus 3.2MP?

Limited Edition Canada Men’s Hockey BlackBerry Bold 9700

Comments

MobileSyrup got the scoop on a Limited Edition Bold 9700 that is getting takedown notices all over. My guess is because the posts mention a certain quadrennial event that is known for being outrageously litigious with their brand. Let me just say that this Limited Edition Bold 9700 that celebrates the amazing game of hockey played February 28, 2010, is a sweet BlackBerry that I would box a kangaroo for. If any Future Shop employees want to take me up on that send me an email.
