Re: Anyone get their PlayBook today?

It actuality might be worth a shot: last year when I preordered my Sony nex 5 camera, I called to see if there was anyway I could pick it up from the warehouse as the release date kept getting pushed back, an I was leaving for vacation in a week. Not only did I get it before launch, but the manager personally drove it out to a local store so I could pick it up.

NOW: please don't everyone go phoning their local tmg (touchstone) and slowing down the process for all of us! Lol

Re: Anyone get their PlayBook today?

I wish people would refrain from asking that continually.

 

I guarantee that if you watch even a few sources of information, you will not miss any interesting developments for more than an hour or two, once things start to happen, and a delay of that duration will not cost you anything.  In contrast, the repeated asking means that hundreds, possibly thousands, of us have to keep sifting through these requests (and in some cases foolishly answering them!

Re: Anyone get their PlayBook today?

To echo peter.  If you have the time to check your email every few minutes and post (yet again) about if any one received an email yet, why we did not get our PB first and how come we dont have a 1.0 SDK, then you have time to create another app.  Less typing -- more coding (yes I know you have to type to code).

 

Shop the Apple store and Android store for product ideas.  See something you like? Make it better on the PB.

Re: Anyone get their PlayBook today?

I can promise you, the second someone get's an e-mail with shipping info they will create a topic about it.

 

And that will be the day this board will be flooded with "OMGs" and "HELL YEAHs", and the server's bandwidth will cry and perish.

BTW, there is an "ignore user" feature on this forum.  Perhaps over time some of us will earn a place on someone's ignore list.  Smiley Very Happy

Re: Anyone get their PlayBook today?

So I called Touchstone. I asked about picking up the PlayBook instead of waiting for them to ship it to me. He then asked me a second time what it was called and I could hear him typing on his keyboard and after a pause he told me " we do not have any PlayBooks here and I've never heard anything about us shipping them".

I then made sure it was touchstone I was talking to and it was. I dunno.
