The BlackBerry PlayBook will be receiving some critical software updates next month. This month we should see native email and calendar apps, which are absolutely necessary for the PlayBook. The Android player, which will give PlayBook users access to Android apps, is also coming soon, though there have been rumors of a delay.
Second, a price cut is coming. Specifically, on the most expensive PlayBook model. That’s the 64GB version, and it now costs only $550 at Best Buy locations. That’s a $150 discount from the original. The other two models, 32GB and 16GB, have also seen $50 price cuts, bringing them to $450 and $550. Clearly, the 32GB is a waste at this point, since the 64GB model costs the same.
