Research In Motion (RIM) recently confirmed with Economic Times that its flagship Blackberry tablet- Playbook is sold out in retail outlets across India owing to the slashed prices of the device by almost half. RIM has decided to extend the festive offer by a week after the unprecedented response. We had earlier reported that the Playbook will not receive any price-cuts in India.
Sunil Dutt, RIM Managing Director said, "We are pleased to see the excitement and overwhelming response to our limited festive season offer on BlackBerry PlayBook. I believe that the 16-GB and 32-GB version of the PlayBook is completely sold out in the retail channels."
"This limited festive offer has propelled a huge surge in PlayBook purchases in the last few days. We have sold over 12,000 PlayBooks across the country within these four days of the offer period, which ended on December 31, 2011," the distributors said.
The 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions are now available for as low as Rs. 13,490, Rs. 15,990 and Rs. 24,490 respectively. The devices were originally priced at Rs. 27,990 (16GB), Rs. 32,990 (32GB) and Rs. 37,990 (64GB).
