According to a leaked screen shot from Office Depot, the 16GB iteration of the BlackBerry PlayBook will be priced at $499. The aforementioned image also tips a launch date of “week 17,” which would put the device’s release somewhere between April 24th and 30th of this year. The price point of $499 is right on-par with other 16GB tablets currently in the market. As for week 17 of 2011 (April 24-30), it makes complete sense to us. Week 18 happens to be encompass May 3rd through the 5th… the dates of RIM’s BlackBerry world conference set to be held in Orlando, FL. That’s your PlayBook rumor du jour, thoughts?
