During the Adobe Max keynote, I heard that anyone who gets an app published will be 'eligible' for a Playbook. What is meant by that? Are we to be entered in a contest, or will just be handed one? What's the timeframe?

More information will be revealed once App World starts accepting PlayBook applications. All I can say for now is "stay tuned".

Any updates on this?
I don't see the point in starting development until the terms are released - otherwise I may waste time developing something that may be deemed ineligible. At this point, it almost seems like the time frame between the release of the terms and the actual PlayBook will be very short, resulting in an impossibly short deadline for development and submission of applications.

It will probably be told once PB apps are acceptable into App World, which is probably getting close to being overdue.
If I were to start a list of criteria for this, it may include items like (personal opionion):
I hope that will not invalidate competitive applications. If you can build a better browser or something, I hope it will be included and not be like Apple.

Can we at least get an official confirmation on the promotion stating that if we have an approved app, we will get the developer/test device?
It's difficult to invest time into something when we're not sure about the terms of the return.

I am certain this is being reviewed by resonable people. I started the list of suggestions, this is also our opportunity to help influence the criteria, so if anyone has ideas to make the submissions resonable to the developer while trying to maintain quality for the platform, speak up now or dont complain later. BB (as well as other mobile platforms) can learn from Apple submission policy and what did/does not work well. The main thing to learn from Apple (my $0.02) is that consistent application of the policy and transparency of that policy is important (as well as not to limit competitive products). Let the market determine the best products.
