BlackBerry PlayBook in Smart, Available for Pre-Order Today (Sort of…)

I keep on checking SMART’s pre-order page for BlackBerry PlayBook since this morning, but it seemed the link we got from its press release is broken.

The last time I checked was probably just several minutes before I published this post. We are supposed to see the pre-order page on this link: www.smart.com.ph/bbplaybook. I’m thinking though Smart moved the page to another location or probably they left it unnoticed.

But anyway, at least we know by now that Smart Communications will be offering plans for BlackBerry PlayBook. The PR says pre-order of the unit will start today until August 17, 2011. Subscribers can get the PlayBook for free with a BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 at Plan 3000, or with a BlackBerry Torch 9800 at Plan 4000. Buyers will be notified by phone once the unit becomes available. Bundle offers are available on a 24-month contract.

Last month, Globe Telecom started offering BlackBerry PlayBook plans which are also bundled with BlackBerry smartphones.

The PlayBook was officially released here in the Philippines last Saturday, August 6th; with a suggested retail price just the same that of the Wi-Fi variants of iPad 2. You may read Smart’s full press release after the break.
