Best Buy starts a RIM PlayBook fire sale

Best Buy's move coincides with the unveiling of Amazon's $199 tablet, the Kindle Fire.

When HP sounded the death toll for the HP Touchpad and slashed the prices to $99 and $149, the once-ignored tablet became an overnight sensation. The Touchpad even sold for upward of $350 on eBay -- its original, non-reduced price -- just because of the fire sale hype. But even at a whopping $200 off, the BlackBerry PlayBook is still too expensive, especially when you consider that the price reduction is the exact cost of the Kindle Fire.

Looks like the BlackBerry PlayBook will be joining the ranks of the other casualties of the tablet wars, unless, of course, it gets another $200 off.
