RIM offers Blackberry Playbook in a 3-for-2 deal

In an exclusive deal, lasting until December 31, 2011 RIM now offers customers the option to receive a third Blackberry Playbook free of charge under one condition: customers must buy 2 Blackberry Playbooks in order to receive the third one for free.

The move comes amidst low sales of the tablet and aims to increase customer awareness and interest in the digital device. RIM sold 500 000 Blackberry Playbooks in Q1 2011 but in summer 2011 sales dropped to 200 000 devices which was below company expectations.

The arrangement is open to any customer who buys a PlayBook from an authorized reseller. As a bonus to the extra tablet, RIM also throws in the choice of a free accessory – either a leather sleeve or a charging pod or even a high-speed HDMI cable. As of now it is not known whether the deal applies to all models, but the 16 GB model is now available for $499 on RIM’s website.
