The official statement is that all apps are treated in order of submission. What we see from various statements made by app developers however pretty much proves otherwise. My apps use no API's or methods that may explain delays but yet I'm waiting for well over 2 weeks now while others had their app approved in days. There are developers who have been waiting for WAY longer than me too.
It's annoying, to say the least. I have no idea why it's taking so long. When I started developing for WebOS it only took a few days for apps to either get approved or to receive a detailed message on what was wrong with it. (something far better than oneliners saying 'it don't work'). And I'm sure at the time they didn't have a huge app review team.
Come on RIM, you're going to have to do something to improve this because this is borderline ridiculous.

According to my contact at RIM there is a 3-6 backup for getting your app reviewed since there are a lot of apps being submitted right now. They are also working on getting more people to do the reviewing.
