RIM also made mention again of their BlackBerry PlayBook giveaway for early developers saying:
Please remember that the plan is to provide one free BlackBerry PlayBook tablet to every registered vendor with a BlackBerry® App World™-approved AIR application that is available for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet prior to launch. The applications will need to meet the BlackBerry App World Vendor Guidelines, and there will of course be some terms and conditions that are principally designed to prevent abuse of the promotion, but the intent is to reward developers who are working on apps in advance of the product launch. We want to help our developer community participate in this amazing opportunity, and thus we are hosting this webcast to help everyone get started — or, for those who have already begun to develop for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, to discover the benefits of the new SDK.
