Re: PlayBook Tablets are now shipping to developers!

And now it I'm worried because my app got accepted then rejected because of bad signing, but I filled the shipping info, so will I still get one or not?

Re: PlayBook Tablets are now shipping to developers!

I'm living in Turkey and everything over 150EUROs gets stuck in customs. 

 

How about BB PlayBook?

 

Will it be sent like a gift ?

Arnimea, if you've already filled out shipping info they aren't going to take it away from you.

@wingflap http://m.engadget.com/default/article.do?artUrl=http://www.engadget.com/2011/04/13/blackberry-playbo... engadget did the review! Not bad battery compared to the iPad 2 considering the size difference, and the OS version

I'm guessing the NDA expired last night at 9:00 PM EST. Every gadget site had a review that they posted at exactly that time.

Re: PlayBook Tablets are now shipping to developers!

Lots of questions in the forums today on my tweet last night that I want to clear up.

 

1.  The main purpose of the tweet last night was to help our community understand that Touchstone is responsible for shipping out the devices.  If you are getting an email asking for your shipping information from Touchstone (tmgideas.com) it is a legitimate message.

 

2.  For timing of the shipment, we are shipping as close to the 19th as possible.  We understand the desire to get these devices into your hands not only to play with them (it is a PlayBook after all) but also to test your applications.  We want nothing more than to get your PlayBook to you as soon as possible.

 

3. For confusion around approvals of your app and then rejections of the same app I want to provide some additional clarity.  The initial approval is to indicate that in terms of the free PlayBook offer you have been approved as your application has met the requirements of the offer.  The subsequent rejection of your application indicates that it is not suitable for sale in App World in its current state.  The most common reason is that your application is not effectively code signed.  Check out this forum thread for good information on ensuring your app is effectively signed.  http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Tablet-OS-SDK-for-Adobe-AIR/HOWTO-Sign-your-Applications-from...

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

Re: PlayBook Tablets are now shipping to developers!

Mike,

 Certainly appreciate you coming in and helping clear the air.

 

 Do you happen to know if we will in fact receive a shipping email with tracking number when it ships, or will it just show up at the door? Thanks again!

Re: PlayBook Tablets are now shipping to developers!

Thank you for your clear explanation. Will the devices be shipped all around the globe?
