BlackBerry PlayBook Poor Sales: Your Reviews
Although Canadian BlackBerry maker Research In Motion has now finally released their first tablet, the BlackBerry PlayBook to the masses, the word is the RIM device isn’t doing too good in the sales department and isn’t flying out of retail stores.
According to The Register by way of Reuters, as of launch date several US and Canadian stores carried the BlackBerry PlayBook, but were limited in stock to just a handful of devices; apparently four stores in Toronto were checked and each one only had five of the RIM tablets in stock.
Furthermore, apparently after mid-day all four stores still had stock of the BlackBerry PlayBook, which could suggest that people simply aren’t purchasing the device as expected.
Apparently BGC Partners analyst, Colin Gillis told Reuters… “It’s going to be a tough sell to the consumer,” while adding the BlackBerry PlayBook although sleek, is a flawed gadget that does not offer RIM’s secure email.
Of course the poor uptake of the BlackBerry PlayBook could be down to Apple releasing the Apple iPad 2 not so long ago, although analysts have indicated PlayBook sales should pick up over time.
