During an interview in Seoul, Research in Motion co-CEO Jim Balsillie hints that the BlackBerry PlayBook will sell for less than Apple’s iPad.  “The product will be very competitively priced” and will launch in Q1 expanding globally in Q2.  It looks like the BlackBerry PlayBook  will cost less than $500.  How much less remains to be seen.  Personally, I believe for the PlayBook to have any real shot we need to see it in the $299 to $349 price range.
