If you want that BlackBerry tablet, the PlayBook, your best bet may be to visit a Best Buy near you. Best Buy’s chief executive said that when the device hits the market (hopefully before the end of the year), “we’ll be happy to offer it to our customers.”
The tablet won’t have any cellphone capabilities (unlike, say, the Samsung Galaxy Tab), so its traditional partners like Verizon Wireless obviously won’t have any interest in it.
Apparently Best Buy is going to go full bore when it comes to devices like tablets. Maybe they can clear out some of that shelf space where they have CDs to make room for all the tablet-y goodness?
And if you youngsters need a job this holiday season, know that Best Buy will be hiring some 29,000 seasonal workers.
