Being the UsingWindowsHomeServer.com resident expert in tablet firesales, I thought it my duty to tell you that RIM is now fireselling the PlayBook.  Read on for details!

Paul Thurrott is reporting that RIM is now selling PlayBooks for $299, all versions, if you can get through to the site.  Here is the link according to Thurrott.  Of course, the firesale has the web site down at the moment, and this looks like US-only, but keep an eye open if you want one of these.  I reviewed it here and concluded that while the hardware was nice, the lack of an email client limited its utility.  $299 might be OK for a mobile video player, but consider before you buy.

Hat tip to Paul Thurrott on this one…
