BlackBerry Playbook: Price and Release Date Update – Sub $500?

We have some good news for those of you planning to pick up a swanky new BlackBerry Playbook next year, as RIM’s co-CEO Jim Balsillie has given us an update regarding the crucial pricing of the device.

As reported from Engadget, Balsillie has apparently gone on record to say that the upcoming BlackBerry Playbook will be ‘competitively priced’ and will definitely be priced ‘under $500’. His comments came in a Korean interview which was then intercepted by Bloomberg.

As for an update on the release date for the device, Engadget reports that the Playbook is still on course for a release during the first quarter of 2011 in America, followed by a release in other countries in Q2.

What are your thoughts on RIM’s pricing hints for the Playbook? How much would you be willing to pay for one?
