Future Shop and Best Buy is looking to put Staples to shame on their so-called doorcrasher… Both are currently selling the 16GB BlackBerry PlayBook for only $149.99 (original $199.99).

Best Buy – BlackBerry 16GB PlayBook with Wi-Fi – $149.99 (Sale ends August 23, 2012)
Future Shop – BlackBerry 16GB PlayBook with Wi-Fi – $149.99 (Sale ends September 6, 2012)

I’m not a big fan of the PlayBook, but I know there are a lot of die hard RIM fans out there waiting for a nice price drop on the tablet.

As a Apple fan, I still recommend the iPad, or to hold off to see if the rumored iPad Mini gets announced in September.

If an iPad is too pricey, you might also want to look at the Google Nexus 7 Tablet for around $199. [STAPLES]
