Research in Motion hasn’t yet announced the pricing for the upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, but the folks at CrackBerry have gotten their hands on an image suggesting that Office Depot will offer the tablet for $499.99.
That’s the price for a WiFi-only PlayBook with 16GB of storage. Sprint is also expected to offer a 4G capable version of the PlayBook, although it’s not clear if that model will cost more because of the 4G or less because a Sprint subsidy for customers who sign up for a service contract.
The CrackBerry photo says the tablet will be available in stores during Week 17. If week one was the first of the year, that means we’ll probably have to wait until April to pick up the tablet from Office Depot stores.
