    Just wondered if anyone (who ordered a Playbook through a Rim employee) at the discount price......has received their playbooks as yet.

    Or......do you even know.......have the employees even received the units yet themselves? Just wondered if anyone knows something. I ordered minethrough a friend who has a relative at rim so can't find out directly).

    It's getting so close to Christmas and it would be nice to know they will be arriving to us in time for gifts.

    Would be nice to know expected arrival of these units. I've had two other unit orders fall through when they were on sale for the 199.00.....last minute they cancelled my order.
    So frustrating waiting for just this one unit!!!!!

    Thanks for any info you may have in this regard.:

    Yeah all my orders still show pending as well. The email the employees received after they placed the order said 2 weeks but we shall see how that plays out.

    I have been told I should receive the playbook the latest by Dec 22nd. Hoping that its true, a lot of those are christmas presents.

    There was an internal email that said any orders placed by Dec 14, were guaranteed to be delivered by Dec 22. So hopefully the ones placed earlier should show up sooner (I'm hoping this week).

    Do we need more evidence of the ineptitude of Research In Motion's handling of anything related to the BlackBerry PlayBook. A delivery date of December 22 seems like an epic fail when you take into account employees were apparently allowed to purchase at reduced pricing for friends and family. Oh, someone give Mike and Jim a good smack upside the head with a spiked club and make sure the discipline is recorded. It is as though the company management wants the tablet to fail. For those waiting for these tablets I only hope the aggravation is worth the price.

    Same here still waiting for my 32 .....so if they have so many PB in inventory (as stated in the media), why would it take so long to get them as well most retail outlets are still out of stock?

    I had a friend order two 32gb's, and another friend order 5 64gbs. The first friend ordered them at 12:05am on the date that the sale started, and I received those two about 3 days later. The 5 64gb's were ordered at 10:00am on that same day but they have not shipped yet.

    Fingers crossed they come soon.

    Well, rim and their promised timeline, always busted... 2 weeks means a month or two... Haven't u guys realised it yet? Don't know how they define : keeping a promise.

    im sure rims just short playbooks because everyone else sold out and they are supposed to serve their real customers first. On the other hand i'd be glad to take 1 pb if there are any rim-mites here that want to send me a PM. Im in the KW area by RIM campus

    Maybe if RIM is listening, they should do what Rogers did when they screwed up shipping.
    They upgraded the orders:
    -Ordered a 16GB - received a 32GB.
    -Ordered a 32GB - received a 64GB.‬
    *
    We're talking about employees here - shouldn't they deserve a little bit of respect.
    *
    Must be great when they are telling all their friends, yeah I ordered my PB and I'm still waiting.
    *
    Lesson #1 in Customer Service - turn a bad story into a good story.
    What they can also do is give them a tablet case for free, or something for all this waiting.
    Though the upgrade I think is their best option right now.

    It didn't take long for people to start bashing RIM on timelines and broken promises eh?

    Guys, give it a rest.

    I got another 64GB via the promotion. Ordered on the November 24th and got it yesterday.

    We will all get our Playbooks. This is not a invitation to take a dump on RIM just let people know if you got yours yet.

    I ordered mine on 2 separate orders, one on the 29th and one on the 30th. One order had 1-32, 1-64 and 1-16 and the other had 2-64, 1-32, 1-16. I received a package from Fedex yesterday but only received one 32 GB PlayBook. Hope the others arrive soon.

    You ordered 7 Playbooks through a RIM Employee? Perhaps you are in NC and are a RIM employee?

    Fed ex has confirmed that a bundle of playbooks my brother in law ordered are coming in tomorrow. I am having mine, brought out west on an airplane this weekend, if my sister can get the package and get to the airport on time for the flight.

    Not a big deal either way to me but I am pretty sure to have it early next week at the latest. Thought you might want the update.
