Where can I buy a new Playbook?

Hi,

 

I've just checked Telus website via a link from BlackBerry website.  Telus have taken down their Playbook site already.  Does anyone know where else can we buy a Playbook?

 

Thanks.

Production stopped in 2012. There are only oddments left around the world.  Are you sure you want one? Great as they are for the money, they are coming to end of life. 

 

P.S. Do not buy any "unlocked". LTE or 3G+ models, particularly any European citizens.

Re: Where can I buy a new Playbook?

Thank you everyone.  I wanted to buy a Playbook becase of my BlackBerry.  I can bridge to it and use internet in complete privacy in all locations  without having to any other medium like free WiFi spots.

 

Thanks.

yes this is a great feature and not a well known one, i have heard of many people getting email accounts hacked at free wifi locations which could lead to identity theft

If you don't find a money back guaranteed genuinely new playbook that hasn't been returned as unchargeable or "refurbished", you can usually connect any tablet to any smartphone that allows personal wifi hotspot to be set up.

OK, I didn't realise they charged for hotspot but not for bridge access.

AT&T will charge for bridge unless you use the non branded version
