Ive finished my App and also got my signing keys and so on. Now I wanted to upload the App and for this cause I registered as App World Vendor, but after few hours I didnt get a Email from RIM. So my Question: How long does it take?
second question: Is the offer with the Playbook till the end of 13th febuary ?
third question: What should I write in the Email to email@example.com? (I am an Android dev. should I mention my dev. Name? )
Thank you very much
...sorry for my english(im German )

There are details on the offer here: http://us.blackberry.com/developers/tablet/playboo
Note that it doesn't matter when the offer actually ends, since what matters is when you submit your app, not when the app is approved, so as long as you can get your vendor account opened by end of tomorrow you should be fine. Make sure you've taken care of everything else in the meantime, like actually signing the app and having someone test it out on a PlayBook, or testing it out on the simulator yourself. You'll also need a description for the app, a 50-char (max) short description, an icon, screenshots (optional but you really should have at least one) scaled to 640x375, and a 1920x1186 "featured" image that would be used in the "carousel" on App World should your app ever be featured (but it's required in any case).
It sounds like you're waiting for vendor approval, however, so that you can actually submit your app. That normally takes something like up to 48 hours, but I'm sure they're trying to accelerate that right now and will make every effort to approve new vendors ASAP. (The above page says as much.)
