UPDATE: Terrence is telling us that ShopBlackBerry confirms the BlackBerry PlayBook Convertible Case will only be restocked in June.
While at BlackBerry World last week I heard quite a few BlackBerry PlayBook users complaining about the OEM BlackBerry PlayBook Convertible Case. RIM decided to put a rubber guard around the sides of the case which covers up the power and media keys. That would be fine if RIM did it right but it makes it really hard to push those buttons. Still that did not stop the case from selling out from the on site Wireless Giant store during BlackBerry World.
Either way we were told that the Convertible Case for the BlackBerry PlayBook is now listed as Out Of Stock on ShopBlackBerry. Terrence also let us know that Staples reps were saying that the product was being recalled due to the seams falling apart easily and that they had returned their stock. On the other hand it looks like Best Buy is still selling them.
So I thought I would throw it out there. Are any of you having issues with the BlackBerry PlayBook Convertible Case? What do you think of it?
I actually decided not to get one and opted for the much cheaper GTMax fake leather Folio case (Possibly cheaper here) that Luis recommended to me for a much more reasonable $10 which does not cover the buttons.
