Despite fears that BlackBerry PlayBook sales are lagging in the United States it appears that they are hot in Australia. Ben McIntosh, the head of Harvey Norman’s Computers purchasing team reports:
“Sales of the PlayBook are very, very good,” said Ben McIntosh, the head of Harvey Norman’s Computers buying team, who credited RIM’s success to its tablet strategy. “BlackBerry has probably come from a different direction. The PlayBook was always going to be more of a niche product based on the fact that they’re really targeting the BlackBerry smartphone base that’s in Australia and the world. The sales of the PlayBook have been fantastic, we’ve re-ordered multiple times and it’s exceeded our expectations.”
No official numbers have been released to give us an exact idea of how BlackBerry PlayBook is selling. However many experts seem to believe that sells have been lower than expected so far.
