Received, the Playbook the forced update process is a little strange and failed a few times but finally worked. Strangely though i can not download my App it says App world is unavailabel in my country BUT all other Apps I can download just fine so no idea whats going on there, will start another thread I guess.

Got mine today... And I'm currently downloading the upgrade toBlacberry Tablet OS 2...
I'm actually amazed on how nice and professional the packaging of the playbook is. Really nice indeed...

Today i got unpleasantly surprised when i heard that my playbook was kept at the customs and that they want me to pay approximately 200$ customs tax for sending it to me. That is more than half price of the tablet.
I didnt hear that anyone else had this problem
I dont understand what is the problem here, does anyone know what is going on here?

Well I got a better one, Fedex called me last week saying they'll deliver and I wouldn't pay anything since it was already done at the origin(I'm in Europe) ...
Today they sent me an email with an invoice for 135 euros to pay for delivery...
I was looking forward to develop some apps but It seems I wont do it...

pedja1 and Bondi, all fees are covered by RIM. Contact BlackBerryPlayBookOffer@tmgideas.com and they can help you out. There will be no cost to you.

I received my Playbook yesterday.. Firstly, on phone, FedEx was saying that they'll charge a 70$ duty. After that, I wrote a mail to tmgideas and they replied that fees are all paid by them, and if you are charged, they will be happy to reimburse me my amount.
Tmgideas and Blackberry - made my day..
