PlayBook 4G LTE Complete Rogers Pricing Information Leaked


As we already know from yesterday’s press release the new BlackBerry PlayBook 4G LTE will be launched in Canada on August 9, 2012 and will be available from Bell, Rogers and TELUS. Now, we have a leaked document via a MobileSyrup tipster and leaked details of the pricing structure for the new PlayBook on Rogers.

Rogers customers can expect to see  this pricing for the PlayBook 4G LTE:

  • 1-Year Contract: $499.99
  • 2-Year Contract: $449.99
  • 3-Year Contract: $349.99

It has also been announced that the PlayBook 4G LTE will be sold by Bell and TELUS without a contract for $549.99. TELUS’ official statement (via MobileSyrup) on the pricing was:

“The PlayBook 4G LTE will be selling at full price from all Canadian providers listed above for $549.99.”

I wonder how long it will take for pricing information to come out from the other providers or to become official from Rogers now that the cat is out of the bag.

  1. This confirmation from Rogers has ruined my dad lol

  2. It’s not meant for consumers. They would have learned their lesson fromt he original pricing – no way they expect to sell this to consumers. I would say it’s for a narrow corporate market, one that they got buy-in from before releasing it. Otherwise releasing it at this price would only cost them money.

    As it is, it’s going to cost more bad press since they (for whatever reason) can’t come out and say the above…

    • maybe

      the whole thing stinks

    • Marc,

      I completely agree with your assessment, and mentioned it somewhere (can’t remember) a week or so ago.

      I think they are doing completely for corp customers standardized on BB. There are more and more mobile apps for these business and they need the 4g to get outside the 4 walls. It only makes sense for them to maintain devices from one manufacturer.
      If they start mixing and matching in the field, it becomes a nightmare to support.

  3. I would go $199 on a 2 year. Maybe I will wait for a black Friday sale.
