Research In Motion says it is discontinuing the lowest-priced model of its BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.

A spokeswoman for the company says the BlackBerry-maker has stopped production on the 16GB Wi-Fi PlayBook. Remaining supplies at retailers and distributors will be the last quantity.

RIM said it continues to manufacture both the 32GB and 64GB models of the PlayBook.

The company has run into trouble trying to sell the device in a market dominated by Apple’s iPad and numerous other tablets.

Earlier this year, RIM began selling its PlayBooks at a discount to boost interest.
