BlackBerry Playbook prices slashed 50% [LIMITED PERIOD OFFER]

BlackBerry Playbook-maker Research in Motion today announced that it has slashed prices of its want-away tablet by as much as 50%, bringing down the prices of the tablet to as low as:

  • 16GB – Rs 13,490 (previously Rs 27,990)
  • 32GB – Rs 15,990 (previously Rs 30,490)
  • 64GB – Rs 24,490 (previously Rs 38,990)

Blame it on the iPad or other ‘better and cheaper’ Android tablets, but RIM obviously isn’t satisfied with the sales figures and hence has halved the rates of the Playbook. But hey, before you think they have taken this move to remain competitive in the market, a spokesperson of the company confirmed that this price-cut is just an “offer” considering it’s the holiday season, and that the offer is valid only till the last day of this year.

“We have announced a limited period offer for BlackBerry Playbook. This offer is valid till December 31st 2011.”

The company also claims a software upgrade for the beleaguered tablet is on the cards sometime next year. But is it enough?
