Looks like RIM is really starting to lean on its steady business/enterprise demographic by offering a pretty sweet deal to make sure they don’t jump ship like a great deal of U.S. consumers. This deal involves the BlackBerry PlayBook, which in my opinion, is a decent device…when tethered to a BlackBerry.
RIM realizes that the corporate world is keeping them afloat and has expanded its BlackBerry Enterprise Service (BES) to Microsoft Office 365 enterprise users so they can access more than just Outlook on their BlackBerries. Now, RIM is offering corporate a buy two BlackBerry PlayBook tablets, get one free, plus three free premium accessories (one per device).
As long as corporate customers buy the devices from an authorized BlackBerry Reseller, you will get the deal between now and Dec 31st. Click ‘read more’ to head past the break to learn how to qualify.
The qualifying premium accessories are:
Black BlackBerry leather Sleeve
BlackBerry Charging Pod
6ft. HDMI Cable
…All the accessories a business user needs to dock the PlayBook with their work computer, and keep it protected when they’re “closing deals” while out of the office. Sounds like a good deal if you’re already knee-deep into the BlackBerry world at work. Do you think this is a “thanks for your support” deal to RIM’s corporate customers or a “We’ve got to find a way to keep these guys in our pockets” maneuver?
