Free BlackBerry PlayBook Offer ,is it working properly?

Hi,

 

I submitted a Playbook game, "Gaby the Talking Shark", to BlackBerry App World™ last Saturday February 4th and it got approved on Monday 6th but I did not receive any message asking for  shipping information . Offer FAQ says:

 

  • When do the free PlayBooks ship? How long does this shipping take? When you’re app is approved, we will send you an email to enter your shipping information. We then pick and pack your BlackBerry PlayBook and send you an email with the tracking number.

But this did not happen to me.

 

Regards

Alec Saunders, RIM’s vice president of developer relations, announced on Twitter that Android developers who port their applications over to the PlayBook will get a free 16GB PlayBook tablet. Those who would like to get their hands on the slate must submit their apps to BlackBerry AppWorldby February 13, then email developeroutreachprogram@rim.com with the name of their app to make their claim.

Yes, I sent an email also but for the moment did not get any answer. Terms & conditions say nothing about it http://us.blackberry.com/developers/tablet/terms_conditions.jsp

Have some patience, I suspect that they will start sending PlayBooks after 13. February

Re VendorTool - it is only for smartphones, sorry, I should have mentioned this. I'm a hardcore Java developer, need to improve my WebWorks skills to make it for PlayBook :smileywink:

If you remember from the first round of free playbooks.  It took RIM a month and so to send out the free PB.

 

If your app is approved and you get the free PB email then you are set.  Just fill in the shipping info when they ask you and then wait for it.

Got email with redeem URL entered shipping info submitted order and then got this email:

"The order for your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is now being processed and we expect to ship the unit to you within the next 72 hours.

We’re fairly certain that you’re looking forward to putting this new tablet through its paces and finding out exactly what it can do. Likewise, we are also eager to get it into your hands so you can see your app in action, and try out the many features.

As soon as your order ships, we will notify you and send the tracking number for reference."
