    Playbook will never catch up. Nothing ever will.

    :)

    And ~

    I was just at Best Buy and they told us they can't give away the Playbook, but iPads are selling like crazy.

    Who'd a thunk.

    I can't see getting another gadget, except for the latest and greatest IPad, of course.

    When you quote iPad in trouble what is your source. When a manufacture like RIM drops prices and sells heaps of units that means they are in trouble and need to move stock. I have no idea where you came up with such a wild heading.

    We are selling Acer tabs at half price here in Australia why because the iPad is selling around 100 to 1. and that is the same with rim. If retailers do not move products within 90 days they have to drop prices or it will cost the retailer money if they don't.

    The winner from this is apple

    RIM is dumping it's Playbooks to commercial accounts at prices well below costs. You can decide what this means on your own. One of our customers purchased 4000 of them and then asked us to port their iOS app to QNX. They did not expect the high quote they received from us and are now reconsidering their options, but RIM is taking drastic measures to move inventory

    Funny as...

    Of course they're dropping prices. They can't sell them! Whereas, iPad 2 is becoming as rare as rocking horse dung where I live, they have a four week wait list. Therefore no need to drop the price!

    Where I live places like schools, hospitals, and special needs people are just beginning to be allowed to do group buys of IPADs on government credit cards, or with government funding. However, the same treatment is not being given to Playbooks (lack of apps) so I'm sure situations like these if widespread will give IPADs another boost in sales.

    I would change that to is Playbook in trouble. At least that was my first thought when I saw the thread!
