I'm a developer based here in Sydney, the following details might help some of you out.
Date submitted: 8th March
Free tablet offer eligibility email: 9th March
Received no word from them for 10 days after approval so rang them up (american customer support number) on the 18th of March. They submitted an investigation ticket and I also emailed them.
Reply from Blackberry: 22nd March as quoted below:
"Thank you for contacting us. Your Playbook application is still being reviewed for content and technical stability. We will have it approved as soon as we can".
Uploaded 0.94 release (previously 0.93): 23rd March
All releases (0.93 and 0.94) APPROVED: 24th March
Free Playbook Tablet Notification that I won: 24th March, 5 hours after releases approved
So my thesis is that those who contact blackberry (who are waiting for it to be approved) get it approved much quicker than those who don't. I have found a few members who had their apps approved 2 or 3 days after getting a reply from RIM. Good luck, Alex.
My application is fairly complex and took something like 10 business days to code.

Yeah, ive been combing these threads pretty closely looking at the timing; 10 days seems like the lowend of the scale with ~ 25-30 days being the high end.
I just sumbitted version 1.0 of my application on the 21st, and the second version just about an hour ago.
looks like i'll hear back by next friday or thereabouts.

I submitted my initial revision Feb. 26. I have updated accordingly with each SDK release as well as adding new features. Not a single revision has been approved. The first two are waiting on the test house, the third is still New.
So I guess I will call, I want at least the first revision approved (or 1 of them) before April 19th.
