Re: Anyone have their PlayBook received?

We’re pleased to inform you that your BlackBerry WebWorks app submission qualifies for the free BlackBerry Style Smartphone offer. To receive your BlackBerry Style Smartphone, please complete the shipping information requested here.  Your smartphone will ship within three business days.

We’re pleased that you’ve submitted your application.  While submitting your app qualified you for this offer, the BlackBerry App World team will need to approve your app, so it can be made available for sale or download.  And, if it’s a BlackBerry PlayBook app, there are separate qualification requirements for the Free BlackBerry Playbook offer.

You’ll receive notification when your BlackBerry Style Smartphone is about to ship. Thanks for the time and effort you’ve invested in creating an app and participating in this offer. Good luck in your app development pursuits!

 

Thats what I got before i entered the shipping info for the Style. But I did not get any email following this. But they were very prompt on the 3 business days.  

Given the number of Playbooks they need to ship, I wouldn't be surprised if we all got a mass email stating that the Playbooks have started to ship and one fine day have the surprise waiting for us outside at the doorstep.

Does anyone have a clue as to where they are shipping from?

Re: Anyone have their PlayBook received?

I'm assuming that they will ship a number of units to every country and hand them over to local distributors like UPS, DHL, FedEx etc...

Re: Anyone have their PlayBook received?

It depends on your location too and location of the warehouse. It would be stupid of RIM if all the devices shipped from a single location. The way it should work is you have various distribution centers all over the world. RIM sends all the devices from their factory(in China??) to these distribution centers ahead of time. The distribution centers then process your invoice and ship the device at appropriate times. The closer the distribution center to your address, the smaller will be the shipping handling cost to RIM.. there is always a balance between overstocking at a center and shipping costs..

 

You might very well receive it from the Waterloo HQ, if they have a distribution center there :smileyhappy:

Re: Anyone have their PlayBook received?

here's hoping that they use tomorrow as a grace period for all late submissions (or an april fools' joke to all the late ones :smileytongue:) and by tuesday we'll see a canadapost, purolator, DHL etc. email. Im hoping they're just sitting in a warehouse in brown parcels with our addresses stamped on them already! If we are supposed to get them before general public, I'm hoping that its at least a week or two in advance!

I don't think that we'll get them before april 19th. in all documents it is stated that we'll get them when they are available. ok, this could mean the availability in the warehouse, but I think the commercial availability was meant.

 

of course I would appreciate it to get the playbook before the horde! :smileyhappy:

They have actually stated more recently that they will  "be sending them to developers ASAP", however this is neither confirmation that we will get them before or after they are publicly available. I'm obviously pulling for them to be shipped out tomorrow, and have it not be an April Fools joke.
