RIM is literally giving away free PlayBooks!…or are they?

I read an interesting article on BerryReview indicating that RIM would give PlayBooks to early developers.  Supposedly, this is a quote from Mike Lazaridis himself: “All you need to do is create an Adobe AIR application for the BlackBerry PlayBook and get it accepted to BlackBerry App World and you’ll get a free one.”  There is some speculation on whether every PlayBook app will earn the developer a PlayBook, and RIM is not being very forthcoming with clarification.  At first I was pretty excited, but after thinking about it, I’m guessing they will give PlayBooks to developers whose apps meet an undisclosed criteria.  While they might accept and approve basic applications that might get a few downloads, the free PlayBooks are likely reserved for those who submit apps that will be downloaded by the thousands.

Regardless, it can’t hurt to try, right?  You know who has two thumbs and is going to shoot for a free PlayBook?  This guy right here, that’s who.  Head on over to the Tablet OS Application Development page on BlackBerry.com to get your SDK and get started 🙂
