I’ve seen this “500k PlayBooks sold” quote a few times since RIM’s recent earnings call. This number actually relates to units that RIM has shipped into it’s supply chain, not units sold to end-users. Electronics companies use this slight-of-hand more and more, and it wouldn’t matter if it weren’t for lazy journalists and bloggers mis-reporting it as units sold.
