Truck containing $1.7m worth of PlayBooks hijacked... RIM probably relieved
RIM has made no secret of the fact that it is desperate to shift the masses of BlackBerry PlayBook tablets currently gathering dust in its warehouses, so its ironic that hijackers bagged $1.7m (£1.1m) worth of PlayBooks en route to Ontario, Canada this weekend. The truck, carrying 22 pallets of PlayBooks was commandeered when the driver took a "rest break". We can't imagine that RIM is too devastated considering its struggling to give the PlayBook away, let alone sell it.
