Does anyone with experience making blackberry apps, in general, know if annotations are permitted on the submitted screenshots? For example:

i dont know the answer to that question but am really interested in anyone else that might know for sure. it would defintely liven things up in the app world site / store. also on that note, i wish they would change the resolution of screen shots to something a little larger than what they have now (i think the main reason is because they never had a resolution higher than phones up until this point).

They've said nothing about what the screenshot content should be, so I can't imagine why they wouldn't allow it. At the very least, have you really got anything to lose by trying? Give it a shot and let us know how it goes. Just be sure to save your original unannotated screenshot so you can revert to them if they don't like it.

The problem is that it is not clear to me whether the offer requires apps to be submitted prior to the deadline in a form which is acceptable. That is to say, if an app requires changes made after the deadline to be accepted, I am not sure that this app would qualify for the offer. Any thoughts?

I'd say that depends on the app and the changes need. For instance, we will ALL need to code-sign the app at some point, and this may well happen after the deadline. We all know it needs to happen and so it couldn't be a reason for rejection.
On the other hand, if your app isn't functional until said changes are made, then I would say it is likely to be rejected.
I think the minimalist approach is best here. i'd say it's far better to submit a functional app without as many features as you would like, than to submit a app that does not function and is full of 'placeholder' content.
If your primary goal is simply to get a device, then i'd say scale back your ampitions. in the words of Guy Kawasaki: "Don't worry, be crappy". (i.e. its better to get out there with something crappy than to wait)

Because of the lack of Tablet OS filter in app world I submitted my screenshots as images on the device (I downloaded the PB press photos and layered my screen shots on it). I had hoped this would avoid any confusion from an end user. I would really hope this doesn't effect my submission, but I will definitely let everyone know if it does.
