I did just notice that the receipt of submission email came from TMGIdeas, so if you DO win anything, don't expect to receive it until sometime in 2012 :smileywink:

I was just poking fun at how fast TMG is shipping out the PlayBooks from the free playbook offer

Re: 2011 BlackBerry® Developers Challenge

Did anyone notice:
"Approximate retail value of each Incentive Prize Package is $5,500."

If you submitted a free app you would end up paying the same in taxes than just buying the phone.

Re: 2011 BlackBerry® Developers Challenge

I think they are valuing the 1week as a featured app as being worth 5k??? Pretty sure we don't have to claim that :smileytongue:

Re: 2011 BlackBerry® Developers Challenge

First 100 to submit gets a prize? How arbitrary. How about the top 100 rated entries get the prize instead? I guess I could submit my game for sake of the carousel promotion, assuming I'm not too late.

Re: 2011 BlackBerry® Developers Challenge

@shawnblais, it could easily be seen as company/ personal promotion and therefore taxable but I don't want to get OT starting another tax debate.
