I'm not to Blackberry development and I am very interested in the Playbook, and the free PB offer. My question is how long does it take to be accepted as a Vendor in order for me to submit apps for the PB? I started the process and recieved and e-mail asking me to get a form notorized and I'm wondering how long it will take once I send the form in? I really would like to be able to submit an app before the Feb 1 deadline.

I received the request for documentation (notary form for individual, articles of incorporation or license for business) a day after applying. I got around to sending it by email, three days later, and only a day after that received approval (this was for a business vendor application).
That was only a few days ago, so I don't think they're being delayed significantly by the surge in applications.

also just a reminder to always check your Spam folder if you have any filters set up. I have heard stories of RIM Vendor emails ending up there and causing vendors a massive amount of confusion and frustration. Good luck!

registration took me 2 days. it probably would have taken longer but they accepted email scans of my Canadian tax registration certificates (self-employed worker) so i didn't need to have my identification notarized.
