Re: PlayBook Tablets are now shipping to developers!

Really hate to be a negative nelly, but no where does it say they are shipping "now". It just says who is shipping them, and that we can expect our emails with shipping details "soon" (about as ambiguous as possible).

 

Hopefully I'm wrong, and we'll have them by launch, but this doesn't give me any more confirmation that they're out the door yet.

That's kinda what I took out of it.  We've know for months who was shipping it and that they would eventually do it soon.  This really didn't say anything new except for it confirms they haven't forgotten about us yet. To bad it didn't say when Touchstone was shipping them.

The message implies they are in the process of shipping it right now.

[ Edited ]

You are right... I got over excited :smileyvery-happy:

 

But, at least they told us, and telling it now means, we can expect the devices at our doors by 19th April or a couple days later.

 

Really good thing, I believe :smileyhappy:

 

UPDATE: Or maybe they've actually started i from today in batches. We just have to wait a bit and see if someone here got the counrier's tracking number.

jffurlan, this is exactly what I thought.

Soon can be anything.
