Re: If you haven't received your free PlayBook email...

Does anyone know if they're planning on trying to get everyone approved by the shipping date (the 22nd), or if they will continue to ship the free ones after that date?  I submitted on March 30.  Got a Release Rejection on the 14th due to signature problems, and uploaded again on the same day.  Content approval is still waiting on the test house.

Re: If you haven't received your free PlayBook email...

My guess is this is the date they're going for finishing all the pre 31st March midnight solutions. Failing that, if your application passes, they probably have another batch shipping date as a contingency me thinks.

Mark Sohm from BlackBerry said in another thread (http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Tablet-OS-SDK-for-Adobe-AIR/Free-BlackBerry-PlayBook-Ship-Dat...) that if the company doing the shipping doesn't have your shipping info in time for the first batch (22nd), they will send some out later in another batch to everyone who's left.

So that would probably mean they're in no special hurry to approve all eligible apps before 22nd.

Re: If you haven't received your free PlayBook email...

Seems a few people are getting approvals in the final days here. Not only did I get my first app approved yesterday. I also got my second app which was submitted on the 3rd or so.

So I think they are trying to push through as many as they can in the last days.

Re: If you haven't received your free PlayBook email...

My first app was just approved yesterday, and I got the congratulations+shipping info email today (an hour ago). Looks like they're starting to move faster again. Good luck to everyone else still waiting!

Re: If you haven't received your free PlayBook email...

I just got my shipping email too. Didn't expect much to happen this late, they must be burning the midnight oil.

Btw, I was able to fill out the shipping info from my curve 8530 in case anyone was not at a real pc when they get the shipping email.
