Mabe if you hadn't annotated your images it wouldn't be taking so long!

@EraserX You submitted your app December 24th. The deadline is strictly for submissions. You can't be excluded from the offer just because they lack the proper efficiency in their testing department.

Yes, but if your app gets rejected and you don't resubmit before the 15th are you still qualified?
I really don't think you'll ever get an official and unambiguous answer on something like that. (And the rest of this is a response in general, not directed specifically at @jffurlan in any way.)
If you think about it, you'll realize they couldn't possibly commit themselves to doing just that for all cases, as it exposes a glaring loophole. Submit a nearly non-functional app, knowing it will not be qualified at first, and then claim that because you submitted before the deadline you have the right to take as long as you want to finish it up, maybe resubmitting multiple times? No way...
And they also won't outright disqualify anyone who has submitted before the deadline but whose app, for possibly some small reason, doesn't quite qualify at first. Maybe it's one of the best apps they've seen to date, but you made the mistake of including the BlackBerry logo in a title bar, somehow thinking you've got the right to do that. They would probably reject it with a note "just remove the logo and you're good", but I really doubt they'd say "oh, and you're screwed, no free PB for you hahaha".
I wish everyone would think for a bit before posting these sorts of questions, and look at the big picture. RIM wants apps, lots of them. They've said they're happy to give away many PlayBooks. Take them at their word, but don't assume that gives you a magical right to ignore the rules, ignore quality, and ignore common sense.
They've stated the terms and conditions clearly. Several threads have covered all the nuances as best we possibly can and have shown that by and large, RIM will remain silent on almost all similar questions. Consider the big picture and remember nobody here really knows the answers (my rant not being an exception), so "your guess is as good as mine" applies, if you spend even a few minutes pondering your questions.

"It has to be submitted by the end date. Approval is required, but approval does not have to be complete by the deadline"
