$150K Canadian dollars. $160K American.

Do you think for a second that RIM does not troll the internet for any mention of their name, especially on sites dedicated to their product? Welcome to the 21'st century.

"What's a BlackPad?"

BlackPad was the in-house name given to the tablet project while under development. Certainly surperior to "PlayBook" except to the public school age demographic where "play" anything is viewed as the intellectual high ground.
Toronto North what the hell are you smoking?

Nowhere in Toronto or the GTA for that matter (Greater Toronto Area for you American's) is there a product from Research in Motion called the Blackpad. LOL

It's possible that the Asian copy-cats at Pacific Mall told you differently but what do they know?

You are simply the best as making the rest of us Canadian's look stupid!

Secondly,
On February 24, 2012, 160,000.00 Canadian Dollar(s) = 160,192.23 U.S. dollar(s), at an exchange rate of 1.0012 (using nominal rate).

So where you got that $150K Canadian Dollars is $160K American I'll have no idea.

Thanks for playing,

Well Phil you have to factor in the extra 2~3% the bank will make from you converting the money over That my friend no currency converter will include for you.

Ummm...

150,000.00 CAD = 150,338.25 USD Look up the exchange rate you dummy


BlackPad was dropped way back before the PlayBook even launched... none of us here use code names once a name has been announced / product released

RIM does have legal teams looking out for the company (for instance when the original guts of the Bold 9000 showed up on eBay and almost sold for $5,000 RIM had eBay remove the lisitng), but to my knowledge they do not actively pay someone to browse forums for "feedback" they have real channels for that including their own forums.

What is Bb and why would they be watching?

Everyone here knows that to find out anything real from the BB company you have to hang out in the bars with them.
