I just got a new email from RIM pushing their buy two PlayBooks get one free deal for businesses and it had a new twist. RIM is now pushing the fact that you should buy the devices now so you get the bonus device and three free accessories and get “The Ultimate Upgrade” in “Early 2012” with PlayBook OS 2.0. I am not sure how good this three for two PlayBook deal is when they are selling for $199 each but still I found it interesting to see how RIM positions the PlayBook 2.0 update:
Coming early 2012, a free, over-the-air software upgrade with sophisticated features designed to change the way enterprises view and use tablets including:
- Advanced, integrated email, calendar and contacts apps
- Support for apps built for Android
- Enhanced web browsing capabilities
- Centralized and powerful device management features (Features require activation and provisioning with a BlackBerry server)
There’s no need to put off your purchase. Buy now to take advantage of this fantastic offer and then upgrade later for free.
Check out the rest of their messaging to business on their “PlayBook for Business” page.
