RIM shocked everybody at BlackBerry World by giving all 6,000+ attendees a free BlackBerry PlayBook. It looks like they are making it official with BlackBerry DevCon 2011 this year in San Francisco. Josep pointed out that RIM has updated the special offers page on the BlackBerry DevCon website to point out that:
Attendees at the conference will receive a 16GB BlackBerry PlayBook tablet to help kick start the development of their next app! Register now so you don’t miss out on this opportunity.
This BlackBerry PlayBook tablet offer is open to those who have registered, paid in full and checked-in onsite at BlackBerry DevCon Americas 2011 in San Francisco. This offer will not be available for companion pass holders, event staff, or Research In Motion® (RIM®) employees.
Check out the full details on RIM’s website. Here is to hoping these devices are preloaded or immediately provisioned with OS 2.0. 🙂
