$1.7 Million Worth of BlackBerry PlayBooks “Fall” of the Back of a Truck


I used to always hear jokes about electronics “Falling” off the back of a truck but this is a bit crazy. Bla1ze @CrackBerry (Thanks Tashanna!) noticed a story about a semi-tractor full of BlackBerry PlayBooks being stolen this past Thursday.The driver coming out of Plainfield, Ontario was transporting 22 pallets of PlayBooks when he went to get something to eat and grab a shower.

Currently the police have no suspects but they have contacted the FBI. I wonder where 22 pallets of PlayBooks would wander off to… More details over at the Hearld Bulletin.

  1. hopefully insurance covers it.. That wouldthen mark a whole truck of playbooks sold?

  2. Time to look on ebay and kijiji for good deals

  3. Dont these devices have hard IDs? Wouldnt they be trackable like any other stolen BB once they are on line?

  4. Seems suspicious to me. The Playbook was a major fail as a product, Blackberry “loses” 22 pallets and claims them on insurance to get money for them, knowing they would have never sold.
