    Yeah its annoying when Spammers take over like that. We know the price will start at about $500 maybe a little less. My thoughts is it will be about $450-$600

    Terrence…go get the PlayBook SDK and build an app and get it submitted, if it’s accepted you’ll be eligible for a FREE PlayBook direct from RIM.

    As in I do understand that. What I meant was can we (developers) get more than 1 playbook? (Maybe buy extra?)

    @Terrence:

    I suspect the “free” PlayBook offer is limited to one per developer. But I guess if you are a BIG developer, turning out numerous quality apps, they may do something. You may want to contact developer relations directly, you can get contact info off the BB web site.

    @BatraD:

    Why do you say that (about the “carriers”)? PlayBook isn’t launching with any cellular connectivity, so I don’t see how “carriers” are going to be involved at all. Look at Verizon and ATT, both now sell the iPad for exactly the same price you can buy it anywhere, I suspect PlayBook will be no different (initially). Now, once cellular data modules are developed for the “module bay” (we HOPE that’s an application for the bay), we will likely see reduced prices with the typical carrier subsidies and contract terms. But that’s going to be quite some time after launch, meanwhile you will be able to buy as many as you want at BestBuy or Costco or Walmart or whoever else stocks it (and puts it “on sale” as they see fit).

    @Terrence:

    I suppose you can buy (as you suggested) as many as you want. Maybe if your app is a Super PlayBook App (a what?) one app might get you more than one free PlayBook, but I’m highly doubting it.
