Re: Free BlackBerry PlayBook Ship Date

This reminds me... Does the Playbook come precharged (not necessarily fully charged)?

Re: Free BlackBerry PlayBook Ship Date

I assume that the battery was charged to a certain point for transportation issues.

Re: Free BlackBerry PlayBook Ship Date

Ok, I realize this might come off as a rant (and I'm not trying to start a comment strom) and I'm thrilled to bits to have even been awarded a device, but I'd like to get this off my chest.

 

The sending of all dev devices starting on April 22nd ("so we would all get them at the same time") failed.  Many of us are still waiting for an email to see when it will actually be shipped... and the chance of us getting the device before next week is incredibly slim now.

 

Hindsight is 20/20 as they say, but I think it would have made much more sense to have handled the distribution like this.

 

Start shipping all devices on April 13th (or earlier even) so that developers all have them in hand by the 19th.  Since the devices need to use OTA to update the software to make the device usable... just set the public server's up to not enable updates until the 19th (when they publicly go on sale in N/A)

 

Bingo! all developers have the device at the same time and are ready to go.

 

Please consider an approach like this should there ever be a "next time".

 

PS for any RIM employees following this thread, appworld seems to have stalled this week for app approval and transition into/through the test house - is there an issue we should know about?

 

Ok, so sorry about all that, back on topic.  Has anyone received an email from TMGIdeas today (Thursday April 28) about shipments? Its almost 11am now and I don't think we've seen a single update today.
