RIM Fires Back at BGR’s BlackBerry PlayBook Report

Earlier today we posted a story BlackBerry PlayBook misses targeted sales goal by 90% at one major retailer. as reported by BGR. RIM has fired off a statement to StreetInsider.com, RIM said:

“the source of the reported comment is anonymous and unknown to RIM, but the comment is certainly inconsistent with the positive feedback we have received from our main retail partners.”

“Best Buy has had great success selling BlackBerry smartphones in North America, so our sales expectations for the BlackBerry PlayBook were very high. To date, we have far exceeded those expectations and we’re finding that customers are even more interested in purchasing once they’ve tested the PlayBook in the store.”

This make total sense after I posted the article I contacted a good friend that works for Best Buy Mobile and he told me people have been swearing by the PlayBook. What do you think about BGR’s Story?
