User ubermanx got a letter (shown above) from RIM and shared it at CrackBerry. By the look of it, you can see that RIM is not going to re-stock the 16GB PlayBook in the retail market. Look for the 32GB and 64GB PlayBook to be the models of choice.
This makes really good sense to me, especially with the current price break down for the PlayBook. The 32GB and 64GB are at a nice price point and allows the user to have a solid entry point with plenty of storage. I do have a 16gb PlayBook and have not run out of room, but as more great games become available, the 16GB will simply run out of space.
CrackBerry did approach RIM for a statement on the letter and this was the reply.
“In regards to your question about the 16G PlayBook -there is more value for our customers in the higher capacity models (32 GB, 64 GB), and as such we have decided to focus our efforts there.“
I will create this post as a topic in the Forum (link below), and would love to hear some feedback.
