    Zinio has been saying its coming soon since October of last year. They have continuously tweeted "it's almost ready", "it's in the final stages", "it's coming soon" weekly since that time.

    They launched a website where you can register for updates last year - has anyone actually received any updates? Of course not.

    They even released an HP Touchpad version - a dead platform - before the Playbook - a viable platform.

    Be patient? No I don't think so. At this point, it's more like "be annoyed".

    Received this reply from Zinio Customer Support today as to release date for Zinio App for Playbook. I hope this is wrong!


    Dear reader,

    Thank you for contacting Zinio Customer Support.
    Unfortunately we don't have a time frame for this release.
    Adding a new platform is time consuming and this is not a top priority at the moment.
    We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.

    If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

    Kind regards,

    Zinio Customer Support

    At this point is anyone really that surprised? I hope its not true. Actually I hope pixelmag releases their app before zinio does; then zinio will no longer be a "top priority" for me.

    How can it not be a "top priority", when a video with the Zinio woman (can't remember her name) was issued by RIM before the OS2 release that seemed to indicate that the app was finished and ready to go? Something smells here, and it's not spring flowers!

    Hmm, meeting deadlines should be "high priority" as it directly reflects on their credibility, I guess they figure it doesn't matter because any iOS or Android user who hears from a PB user that they're unreliable will just be like yeah whatever they are for my OS.

    Testing of the app as with any piece of software doesnt take a few hours/days, it can take some time, to iron out bugs etc.
    What they showed in that interview, most likely wasnt a finished product.
    Middle of the month can mean anytime soon.
    If you want to get all "suspicious" and start echoing the idiots who harped on about "where is OS 2.0" and so on, well, its not going to get the app brought forward any closer.
    Lets just hope it comes in the next week or so.
    I would like to start buying Atomic soon, and am happy to wait a little longer... just not too much longer

    i hope not. their website has been updated for quite a while already. and the demo at CES? maybe it just so happens that email got into someone new in the customer support? damn. i'm making excuses for them. -_-

    theres pretty much nothing we can do now but wait.

    More from Zinio Customer Support on timeframe for App for Playbook. This is better news.
    Appears no one really knows. This sounds like the delay is BlackBerry's ????

    This came by email about 3:26 pm EDT

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Zinio Customer Support.

    I apologize for the inconvenience, I really wish I had an exact date or time frame to give you. All I know is the app is out for review with the necessary people at Blackberry and waiting for their approval. We expect the app to be available soon, but we are unable to provide an estimated delivery date for the app.

    In case you haven't already, you can sign up here to be the first to know about the availability of our upcoming Playbook app:

    Form

    The Zinio Reader apps are currently compatible with iPad/iPhone, Android 2.2 or higher devices with access to the Android Market, Win 7 (touchscreen devices only), and WebOS.

    If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

    Kind regards,

    if that the case, then it seems the whole thing is now down to RIM sorting out the legals.

    And if i know my Distribution Laws. that should take about 10-14 days

    so if its at that stage, then it should be here no later than 2 weeks time, but could happen at any time at all between then and right now.
