I'm from Turkey and today Fedex contacted me saying that my playbook is at the customs. They are requesting over 250 USD in total for the customs clearence and only 60 USD of it is tax! what should I do now? and in the morning I was all excited about it finally arriving..
I contacted TMDIdeas with the same concern (another country, though) and got the following reply:
All BlackBerry PlayBooks will be sent to developers all taxes and duties paid by RIM. You should not incur any costs.
I think you should press the FedEx with this info (maybe they are just trying to fool you and get some money), if no success - contact TMGIdeas (well, you can do it right now).

Yeah I contacted TMG and they contacted FedEx USA. They opened an investigation, the result of which I hopefully will get today..
Now I really feel like being fooled by FedEx. They are stealing from my playtime!

, An another Dutch developer receiving it the same day I get mine. What city do you get your PlayBook shipped to?
My PlayBook is shipped to Leeuwarden. What is the estimated time you get you PlayBook?

Mine will be shipped to Amsterdam. Estimated time : 06:00 PM, thats 12:00 local time.
The estimated delivery date on the tracking webside is displayed as the destinations local time, so for me it is 18:00 (6:00 PM). I can't imagine the 6 hour difference. Are you correct with your delivery time?
