Re: PlayBook Tablets are NOT yet shipping to developers!

The fault is not ours', it's RIM's. 

 

They are not giving any REAL info about it.

 

Oh, RIM. Come on. We don't expect you to change the date that you decided, only give us some info. But REAL info.

 

If you decided a date. 

 

As I stated before, think that we'll get it in a week. But I only think. 

 

Now it's 11 PM here, gonna sleep. 

 

Good night everybody,

Re: PlayBook Tablets are NOT yet shipping to developers!

It is not RIMs fault that hundreds of posts say the same thing complaining about:

 

1) Not having the PB before everyone else

2) Asking when the PB will be shipped

3) Will I get my PB in my country before, during, or after someone in another country

4) RIM not telling me why I have not received my PB yet

5) RIM not telling me when I will get my PB

6) Will the PB come in a brown box or a white box

7) Will Prince William get a PB for a wedding gift

 

And hundredes of variation to any of the above themes.

 

Everyone, let it go.  RIM will let you know when it ships at the time of shipment.  Not before.  RIM is not obligated to let everyone know everything they are doing.  If you want to be an insider, become an active alliance member / partner.  If you don't want to (or can't) then live the lack of information that is provided.

 

No one here can help you or anyone else in getting the PB shipped out sooner.

 

Stop posting on this topic and start coding.

Re: PlayBook Tablets are NOT yet shipping to developers!

I have to admit, jtegen is right. RIM really couldn't care less about how any of us feel about any issue regarding the developer PlayBook promotion. They don't care and they're not going to if we post about it a lot. I realize that now. They're not obligated to do anything for us except for at some point honoring their promise of a free PlayBook. That 'some point' could be any point in time depending on how you define the word 'soon'.

 

For a while I was misguided by assuming they'd care but they don't. They have their apps which is all that really mattered here.

 

I'm letting it go now and i'll see that PlayBook when I see it at my doorstep.

Again, I think the reason we are most upset is that we are getting slammed in reviews because of how bad our apps are, and how they don't work, EVEN THOUGH RIM has tested them and asked us to put them for sale. For all I can see, this is a situation that could have been avoided, and I feel bad for the next poor developer that gets called out by a reviewer or a consumer over some unforseeable bug.

Haha...I still find it hilarious how [the total lack of] qa became such an issue.  I wonder if this is why they're being so slow to approve apps now, or if they're simply backlogged.

Re: PlayBook Tablets are now shipping to developers!

I though it was kind of funny in one review I read that the ported twin stick shooter didn't support multitouch so you could either move or shoot but not both!

Funny to you. Not to the poor dev who worked to have their app for sale.

Re: PlayBook Tablets are now shipping to developers!

Hello guys

on 04/15 I sent an email to "The Blackberry Developer Program team <.....@tmgideas.com>" quoting the famous Twitter message :

 

Touchstone (tmgideas.com) is shipping the free Blackberry #Playbook tablets for developers. Look for your free tablet to ship soon !" ^MK

 

I got an answer from the same address on 04/18 00:51 GMT+1, this is the message : 


 

The BlackBerry PlayBook is expected to be in market this week.  We expect to be able to begin shipping the devices shortly after the market launch.
Thank you,
The BlackBerry Developer Program Team
Hope this helps :smileywink:
