A quick follow-up here to my note below regarding the performance of the BlackBerry PlayBook. It would appear that my impression of the sales of the PlayBook based on my observations of the Wall/Bay Street crowds was correct. Sales for the PlayBook were better than expected for the first month with over 250,000 units sold, and apparently the majority of the sales were of the 64GB "high end" model. While these numbers are just a fraction of the iPad sales, they are high enough to possibly position RIM as the number two player in tablets over the coming year.
