Recently, I let you know about a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet offer where RIM would give developers a free PlayBook as a reward for submitting a PlayBook app to BlackBerry App World. That offer was supposed to end today but according to a new blog post from RIM, it has been extended to the end of March 2nd! From the Inside BlackBerry Developer’s Blog:
Today was going to be the deadline for the offer – but due to the overwhelming interest in the offer, we’re extending it one more time. How much interest? There have been over 1,500 app submissions as of last Friday and over 6600 new developers registered in the BlackBerry App World™ storefront. We have teams working around the clock to approve vendor registrations and app submissions. Because of the high demand, approvals are taking longer than normal – we appreciate your patience.
If you’re not a registered BlackBerry App World vendor, you now have until 11:59 PM EST on February 15, 2012 to register at http://appworld.blackberry.com/isvportal.
All vendors (new and existing) now have until 11:59 PM EST on March 2, 2012 to submit your application to BlackBerry App World. Check out our offer FAQ and we’ll be updating the official terms & conditions later today.
Devs, don’t let this opportunity pass you up. Get crackin’ on those PlayBook apps! 😀
