About Playbook shipping

Hello!

 

I don't know who I can ask these questions by e-mail, so I ask here - may be, someone knows answers. (I wrote the questions to BlackBerryPlayBookOffer@tmgideas.com, but have yet no answers).

 

1) Is there any information when Playbook will be commercially available in Russia, how soon it will be?

2) I have relatives in USA. May I state their address as shipping address to get tablet sooner?

Please use plain text.

Re: About Playbook shipping

RIM already stated a few times that they would try to ship the PlayBook devices to all developers at the same time. You could fill in the address of your relative to be sure, but expect higher shipping costs then (first to USA (free) and then to Russia).

Re: About Playbook shipping

Oh sorry, forgot to mention :smileyhappy:

 

The country is Pakistan. And there are already many vendors from Pakistan in App World developing apps for the BlackBerry Smartphones. I also successfully verified my registration for vendor portal using the same country name.

 

I hope they just forgot to add it into the country list :smileyhappy:

Re: About Playbook shipping

Isn't Pakistan one of the countries on the restricted export lists? Specifically for things like advanced cryptography, which the Playbook certainly will include?

How can they ship all devices at the same time, if sales start in different countries in different time?

Re: About Playbook shipping

Well, because we are developer. They want us to [create, develop, test] apps for their device, regardless of whether your country is the last one to get playbook.
