Re: Free BlackBerry PlayBook Ship Date

I think the theory (don't remember who said that) saying that orders are divided by date and that a "whole day" is given to a single employee might be true.

 

Seems that march 30th (and 29th) are in the hand of the slow ones :smileywink:

Re: Free BlackBerry PlayBook Ship Date

I ordered mine March 8th and still no email, should I be worried? Is there a problem with this date?

@phikachu you can also just goto Futureshop or Bestbuy (or a retailer like that were you live) and buy it than return it in 2 weeks when you get your free one.

Sound like a good idea but unfortunately I'm in London. People are selling it on eBay for £390 which isn't too bad. Interestingly...I might get my first touch of one on tuesday. It's a "developer" device which apparently doesn't have any app store and just the browser (described just like the simulator). 

 

Does anyone know much about these?

Re: Free BlackBerry PlayBook Ship Date

Ha! If they were sending devices that only had a browser I'm sure alot of devs wouldnt have wasted their time making the apps they did.

The dev PlayBook is the EXACT (if not better because the power button isnt flush) same as the retail version.

Re: Free BlackBerry PlayBook Ship Date

Sorry, misunderstanding...us developers on here who qualified for the free device are actually getting retail versions of the playbook. The device in question is a unique one (given to a client of mine by RIM) and I was told it doesn't have the app world on it or I'd have just downloaded my app for testing.

Re: Free BlackBerry PlayBook Ship Date

Given to them? Must be a hand me down beta of the device.

I have a buddy at RIM who had the beta device and when he showed it to me all it had was the browser.

@HuXu77 "if not better because the power button isnt flush"

I´m not sure of that.

AFAIK, some developers (more than a half) got it flush.

Well, I hope mine arrives raised... :smileyvery-happy:
