I'm guessing the NDA expired last night at 9:00 PM EST. Every gadget site had a review that they posted at exactly that time.

Lots of questions in the forums today on my tweet last night that I want to clear up.
1. The main purpose of the tweet last night was to help our community understand that Touchstone is responsible for shipping out the devices. If you are getting an email asking for your shipping information from Touchstone (tmgideas.com) it is a legitimate message.
2. For timing of the shipment, we are shipping as close to the 19th as possible. We understand the desire to get these devices into your hands not only to play with them (it is a PlayBook after all) but also to test your applications. We want nothing more than to get your PlayBook to you as soon as possible.
3. For confusion around approvals of your app and then
rejections of the same app I want to provide some additional clarity. The initial approval is to indicate that in
terms of the free PlayBook offer you have been approved as your application has
met the requirements of the offer. The
subsequent rejection of your application indicates that it is not suitable for
sale in App World in its current state.
The most common reason is that your application is not effectively code
signed. Check out this forum thread for
good information on ensuring your app is effectively signed. http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Tablet-OS-S

Certainly appreciate you coming in and helping clear the air.
Do you happen to know if we will in fact receive a shipping email with tracking number when it ships, or will it just show up at the door? Thanks again!

Thank you for your clear explanation. Will the devices be shipped all around the globe?
