Thanks :smileyhappy:

How do I have to interpret the '?' at the end? Did your initial submission get accepted or the update?

Does anyone here know anything about a file "blackberry-tablet.xml" that should be placed in the .bar file?

Re: Free BlackBerry PlayBook Offer ,is it working properly?

I submitted an app on Feb 12, got the "You've Completed the First Step" email on the 14th, approval on the 29th, and the "Congratulations!" email telling me I qualified and requesting shipping details today, the 2nd of March.  Immediately after providing my shipping details, I got an "order processing" email telling me it should ship within 72 hours. According to the order page, it will ship with UPS, FedEx or DHL.  It can't be delivered to PO boxes.

 

For me, the delay between app approval and the request for shipping details (which is what tells you you're actually going to get a free PB, I suspect that an approved app can still be considered ineligible) was 2 days.

 

There's also some useful and interesting information in the post here: http://devblog.blackberry.com/2012/02/update-on-blackberry-playbook-offer-and-submissions/

They will ship with FedEx or USPS to select countries.
