Re: Free BlackBerry PlayBook Ship Date

A few times this thread is like the "downloading now" threads on CB Smiley Wink

 

However finally I figured the shipping workflow at TMG out. It is as follows: 

 

Because this is an overwhelming task TMG bought three brand new pick-ups and engaged 6 new interns. To dispatch 12 packages, one intern each is going to BestBuy and buy 2 PlayBooks. Then the whole group of six drop off the packages at a FedEx store. Every tour takes up to 3 hours that's why this overwhelming task "will take a week or so".

INCREDIBLE!

TMGIdeas has replied me an e-mail within 5 minutees!!!

Well, I actually managed to get from them something that is not a template, and they have offered me to explain the proccess more in detail.

 

When I finish talking with them, I will post the conversation here, ok?

This will happen in less than 15 minutes if they reply as fast as they´ve been doing it for the last 30 minutes.

 

PS: They promise that "the process is that we are shipping the oldest orders first. "

Nice to meet you Smiley Happy

Hello

As I see, BlackBerry PlayBook aren´t being shipped in a first come - first serve basis.

I wanted to know, what order is being followed, and, if I ordered it on April 12, when should I expect it to be shipped...

Thank you in advance for your (I hope) fast reply.

Julio,

The BlackBerry PlayBooks are shipping out in the order that the orders were submitted. 
With the overwhelming response to this offer, the shipping of the devices will take a week or so for all devices to be sent out.
We appreciate your patience.

Thank you,
The BlackBerry Developer Program Team

JULIOPP - 22:41
You just replied a template.
I know you´re surely receiving lots of emails, but, could you reply this one with the right answer?
I will post it on the forums and the amount of mails will be decreased.
Everybody wins.

In what order are you shipping? (Don´t tell me that it´s "received order" because it´s obviously not)

Thank you!
Smiley Happy

TMGIdeas - 22:46
Julio,
We are not sure why you believe it is otherwise, but the process is that we are shipping the oldest orders first.
If you can please explain to us why you believe otherwise, we would be happy to address your concern.

Thank you again,
The BlackBerry Developer Program Team

JULIOPP - 22:46
Thanks for your kind help.
Yes. Some people who filled their shipping info on December hasn´t received their shipping email, while some people who submitted it on Jan or even later did got it.

Thanks again, I´m glad you want to clarify this proccess.
Julio

TMGIdeas - 23:01
Julio,
There are multiple people working on shipping these devices in parallel.  
Therefore, it is feasible that one worker is faster than another and has moved into their January shipments prior to another worker completing their orders for December. But, the process is set to get the oldest shipments out first.
I hope this helps to explain how there might be some crossover between months.

Please feel free to contact us again if you need further clarification.

Thank you,
The BlackBerry Developer Program Team  

JULIOPP - 23:06
Yes, that explanation was great.
This willingness to help give a good image of you.
May I abuse of your kindness, and ask you, what dates are you proccessing now?

Many thanks for your kind attention.

WILL UPDATE THIS WHEN I GET A REPLY Smiley Wink
Hope it´s useful.

I asked the tmg folks as to how many orders in all they have for the free tablet offer and the reply was "thousands"

ya doesnt mean anything but its a lot of orders and they are really cranking at it on a Friday evening...
