    The Playbook was $189 over BF weekend that price came from them RIM no tax no shipping charges. I had to send 4 emails over to finally get someone and tell them to cancel my order. After 3 weeks later I get an email saying they will cancel it. A week later I get another email saying there was something wrong with the ordering process and they couldn't fulfill my order. I should go back to RIM site to reorder again or go to Best Buy. What!
  5. Black Berry is still popular in other countries

    One of Jaguar's reps was on the Lang & O'Leary exchange a few days ago. Their plan for RIM seems quite reasonable. But I'd be very interested in a MS/Nokia/RIM juggernaut. The combined expertise could create an OS and environment that would make Android and iOS look amateur by comparison.

    I do hope things work out for RIM's employees; I'd hate to see them lose their careers and Ontario lose more high-bracket taxpayers.
