They really should stop using relative terms and start saying an actual date.

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:

They're so vague they can't even confirm that the device will be out the release date of the 19th! Expected to be in market this week....psh.

Re: PlayBook Tablets are now shipping to developers!

I wanted to provide some additional clarification on the free PlayBook offer and device shipment details given the comments on this thread and in the forums in general.  We wanted to ensure that all of the devices could start shipping at the same time for our developer community and have been working hard with Touchstone to ensure we get the logistics right.

 

Devices for the free PlayBook offer will start shipping globally to developers on April 22nd and you will receive an email from Touchstone with shipping information (tracking numbers, etc) when the device has been shipped out the door.  We really appreciate your patience with the process to date and are excited to get these well deserved devices into your hands.
