Wow. RIM reported their Q2 results yesterday. In amongst the figures reported was this:
— Approximately 200,000 PlayBook tablets *shipped*
So that’s not even the number sold, just shipped to distribution channels.
Just for quick comparison sake, that’s 200K shipped vs. 9.25 million iPads sold in that quarter. Or, that’s two days worth of iPad sales for the entire quarter.
This is the same PlayBook that RIM talked about as being ‘way ahead’ and setting he standard before it was even released. The one they promoted with ads like the one above, declaring that ‘Amateur Hour is Over’.
With those kind of sales numbers, maybe amateur hour is over now, or soon should be.
