RIM is still trying hard with the PlayBook, going to cut prices, update software

Rim-playbook1

RIM is so silly, isn't it? It is trying so hard with its BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. We've reported on it countless times, and to be honest, we're kind of surprised it's still going. But RIM thinks it's awesome, so it's going to do two things that it thinks will help it move forward.

First, RIM is going to slash the price. We don't know by how much or if it will make a difference, but if HP's Touchpad firesales were any indication, we may be seeing the PlayBook all over the place. Secondly, they're going to release a much-needed software update. Hopefully, this will include native email and calendars, as well as that Android emulator that we've been waiting on. 

Let's just say that the PlayBook makes its way down to the $99-$299 mark. Would any of you buy it then? Are any of you even still interested?
