    We found the BlackBerry PlayBook to be a pretty solid piece of hardware, but it seems there was a problem batch—an inside source tells us that nearly 1,000 faulty tablets were shipped to Staples, and now they’re being recalled. We’re hoping that Staples (and any other affected retailers) will reach out to customers and inform them of the problem right away, but just in case that doesn’t happen, we’ve compiled a searchable spreadsheet of all 935 alleged serial numbers for you to check against your own. Find it right after the break.

    1000 isn’t so bad.    But the lost revenues may erase the entire profit margin of the Playbook line.  (joking, but it may be true).

    In any case, another penny on the rail line of the train wreck that is Playbook.
