BlackBerry PlayBook set to arrive on August 6 in the Philippines

For the BlackBerry users out there who are wondering whether when the BlackBerry PlayBook will be available here, we just got word that it will be on August 6. Yes, you don’t have to deal with the overpriced grey market PlayBooks out there.

BlackBerry PlayBook

Official pricing of the BlackBerry PlayBook are as follows:

  • 16GB at P23,990
  • 32GB at P28,990
  • 64GB at P33,990

It’s nice to hear that it followed the US pricing but with tax included. Similar to what Apple did with the pricing of their iPad 2 here in the Philippines.

We’ve been playing around with one for quite some time and did a user experience review from a true BB user. It’s quite a treat to use if you overlook the lack of apps. You will enjoy the amazing screen and speed of this beautifully created device.

    how is this compared to the acer iconia tab a500? price, performance, user-experience and features?

    • apples and oranges … QNX vs Android. 7″ vs 10″. pricewise mas mura pa rin yung Acer. quality wise mukhang lamang si blackberry as well as sa speed and UI in my opinion. apps lamang si Acer.
