Difficulty in Sourcing a Playbook

Hello. Over the past week or so, I have been searching for a Blackberry Playbook. None of the stores recommended by Blackberry on their site presently stock the Playbook. I would be most grateful if someone could tell a suitable place (that is reliable!), where I could purchase one from as I would love to do so. Thank you.

Currys or PC World. Order and Collect.

And Amazon, I suspect.

Re: Difficulty in Sourcing a Playbook

Yes indeed,  though with UK consumer laws we are better protected by visiting a store snd banging our credit card on the counter!

Doesn't matter... just answering the question.

It matters.   Amazon.co.uk  have their own "unique" way of dealing with both corporate taxation and consumer laws which some find distasteful though perfectly legal. I use them, but not for expensive items which may need warranty support in 11 months' time.

Re: Difficulty in Sourcing a Playbook

I did try there. I reserved it last night and went to collect it. However, there had been a problem the stock numbers, meaning there actually wasn't one in stock. I was not happy. According to the website, my closest one is in Kendal, at least an hour's drive from my home. Thank you for the suggestion however.

Re: Difficulty in Sourcing a Playbook

I have had a look and due to my lack of success elsewhere, Amazon may have to be the solution, although I was wanting to purchase insurance on the item, something that PC World/Currys does offer. Is there a way I could purchase insurance (at a reasonable price) on the product if bought from Amazon? Thank you for the suggestion.
