re: RIM Cuts PlayBook Price By $300
RIM did not see the writing on the wall (as they have missed so many times with the Blackberry phones also). When other manufacturers were discounting their tablets (in July and August), RIM was too slow to start discounting. If they would have started discounting earlier before the ASUS and ACER Android tablet discounts, they might have gained some traction, but they didn't until the fire sale at $99. That and the fact that there was not development environment (no Java support) that could easily give them a quick set of applications that would work on the Playbook. Too many other development environments out there (Apple with iOS, Android, Windows Phone, etc...). They expected folks to come along for the ride and there were just too many players for a completely new environment.
