Is there anything else one needs to do, after RIM sets up the Beta Zone account (for those of us who got an invite but hadn't joined Beta Zone before), other than logging in and adding a PlayBook PIN in the Technology tab? I didn't do the PIN for a couple of days, but did it yesterday morning and have yet to see any further email or any sign that I can update to the beta.
Just trying to get a sense of how fast that last stage is, or whether I might be missing a critical item or field somewhere.

Peter, I had subscribed to the Beta Zone earlier, but didn't fill in very much of my profile at all. Once I got the invite, I went in and updated my profile including tablet PIN. Later on, I checked the tablet with Check for Software and it informed me that the download was available. The email notifying everyone of the download update came a half hour or so later.

I've been on Beta Zone for some time now, when I got the invite I applied, and updated my PIN. I have yet to recieve an update. I double checked, my PIN was entered correctly.
What worries me is that they say that it will only be up for a short period of time (they say one week) and I worry I won't be able to test anything because I never got the update.

I have requested invites be sent out to all who have requested them up to this point. Note that today's batch of invites may not be sent out until the end of the day.

I just recieved an e-mail stating that the beta is now closed to new participants and that if I had not recieved the download notice it means I added my PIN to my Beta Zone profile too late.
Just thought I would update this thread for any new comers.

I registered at the beta zone & added my PIN, and requested the invite a couple days ago, but as of today don't see the invite in my inbox or spam folder ...

@Zymatic: I got the same thing. Ironic since that was what I was worried about.

Hello Mark (again : ),
I registered my PIN and received the email invite to donwload but still no new OS available from my PlayBook.
Anyone got the beta OS out of North America ?
