Hey guys! I've got a great idea. Nobody wants to buy our tablets. But I have a solution—instead of fixing what sucks about the PlayBook, let's throw in an extra one! OK, now who's got a cold Molson?

RIM's latest tap dance towards the tech ash heap taps a tried and true sales method: the buy X get one free deal! Usually found on deodorant shelves at Target, not at a major electronics company, RIM says the business-targeted promotion will make things "more affordable for your business." Yes, your business, now equipped with tablets that can't check email, calendars, contacts, or BBM each other, will be the next IBM Coca-Cola. Go forth, captains of industry. [RIM via GigaOM]
