    Saw this the other day. Live, in Stock. At a local store now less. Woot ??

    Specs, you say?

    OMG. Had to do a double take. Make sure I saw it right. A dual core, 32 GB RIM tablet, new in the box, for $148, Canadian Dollars? YES. And you can even order it online - Walmart.ca page.

    Or you could spend a similar amount, at the Apple Store Canada, and get a refurbished 8GB iPod Touch; they seem to be phasing out that model, no more cheapies. New line has only 32 GB, starting at $299. Ouch

    Refurbished 8 GB models go for $149; add a few bucks ($209) and you get a 32 GB model. Both ''refurbished'', but with a full 1 year Apple warranty. IMO - new stock, sold in white boxes, clearing out this model.

    See all the models and prices (Canadian site, CAD prices) HERE.

    I've already bought two at that price. Tremendous machines! Futureshop.ca had them on for $130 this weekend. I missed the last one by seconds.

    Oh, my! $130, even lower, great deal.

    With the Nexus 7 16 GB now selling for USD$199 (or CAD$209 in Canada), they might have to drop their prices even lower. Like the weekend sale you got.

    Thanks for mentioning it! Will keep an eye on the sales.

    Here's a screenshot of current Futureshop.ca models, prices :
