RIM extends free PlayBook offer to BlackBerry Developers, new and existing

According to RIM they have had over 6600 new developers registered in the BlackBerry App World™ storefront since Friday, and due to the overwhelming response, have decided to extend the offer for a free PlayBook.

We knew developers were excited about our latest BlackBerry® PlayBook™ offer for Android™ developers when we announced it two weeks ago. You asked that Native C/C++, HTML5, Adobe® AIR®, and Qt developers have a chance to participate and we answered by opening the offer to all developers.

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 & conditionslater today.

So you’ve read it folks. RIM is giving you a second go to submit some really awesome PlayBook apps and get a free PlayBook while doing so! A win-win I must say. Hit up the source link below to get all the details from RIM themselves.
