Anyone have their PlayBook received?

After months of daily checking the  "Anyone have their App approved?" thread I think this thread is in order given news that  RIM started giving them away... (sorry about improper English in the subject but I wanted this post to be part of the "series").

 

So -- who's got one?

I read in several of those articles that it was "on loan".

 

Anyway, we'll all be getting emails when they ship, so it really just comes down to who lives closest to the shipping depot, as measured by the speed of a courier...

Re: Anyone have their PlayBook received?

I've been checking the mail 3 times a day every single day for the past week now, and will continue to do so until I get it. I simply can not wait!!! Will definitely be posting here as soon as I get it, most likely from my PlayBook. :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Anyone have their PlayBook received?

Since they are shipping them all at the same time I hope they stick to the deadline (Sorry if you are close but didn't make it) so that we can get them ASAP. I am going to be checking my email like a mad man.

Re: Anyone have their PlayBook received?

@thesmileman: if they did the same thing as the free Style offer, then you are better off looking out the window. I didn't get any email about shipping..it just showed up at my door step one day.

Re: Anyone have their PlayBook received?

@thesmileman,

 

I'm hoping they stick to the offer deadline. I'm also hoping that they will either ship it out as soon as the deadline reaches (being Friday), or that they have already begun shipping.

 

@tags07,

 

Did they state in the offer for the Style that they would inform you of when they have shipped it? How soon after the offer was up did you get your Style? This gets me even more excited, because for all we know they have already started shipping and any day now we could see a delivery truck outside our houses.

 

I know, I'm too excited and its really just wishful thinking right now.

From the order confirmation email:

 

We appreciate your patience, as tablets will ship as soon as they are ready .... You'll receive notification when your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is about to ship.
