    So there was a front page post about this a couple weeks ago and I havent seen anything since. They said Mid-March... well... by my math that is NOW.

    So two questions:

    1: Does anyone know when this is happening, or any more info?

    2: What will you be getting with the $25?

    Are there any really good tech/gadget mags?

    Im also waiting on this app.

    I think this would be great for the Playbook and attract even more people!

    This one's kind of a big deal.

    I'm eagerly awaiting this one, too. I've had Zinio magazine subscriptions for years (not having stray copies of Car & Driver littering the house has probably saved me years of marriage counselling).

    We've seen it repeatedly, I'm sure it's coming soon...

    I have to check it out though bc someone posted this link in the comments of that article

    Rogers Magazine Subscriptions - Subscribe to Bestselling Canadian Magazines and American Publications

    and you can apparently get actual paper mags for pretty damn cheap.

    On zinio WIRED is about $50 and on that site it is $30!!!

    Plus, if you are a rogers subscriber you can get some for even less!

    I will check this out and let you know if it is legit... or if someone else actually uses it please let us know.

    everyday, i'm hoping to find an email amongst my inbox from zinio, telling me the app for playbook is out, with a gift code for $25. Mid march is upon us. Their webstore has already updated BlackBerry as supported on all their magazines. Can't wait. My library is already full of unread mags.

    The thing about pixelmags is their lack of automotive titles, like top gear & evo. Pixelmags But they do have some interesting titles too. so i'll probably give it a try too.

    i'd give Zinio $50 any old day of the week before giving Rogers a cent but that's just me

    We're all waiting for this app to be released. Seeing as how the app is based on the same platform as most of the Playbook apps, you would think that this would have been a no brainer and released a year ago. I hate to be a spoil sport, but some of these developers have let me down. Until this release of the android player for the Playbook, why haven't they jumped all over this? I mean what's the worse that can happen; you make more money? That's a problem i wouldn't mind having. I really don't think Zinio is going to come through (I'm actually hoping they make me eat crow on this one). Its really not a hard build and not a a hard conversion. This should have been done by now. Yes people, i'm a little miffed by this whole process.

    the app was already showcased during ces, so i think it can't be that far off. my bet will be within this month. after I got the playbook and heard zinio was coming, I stopped buying magazines and signed up for a zinio account, and bought my magazines from them instead, intending to read it on my playbook. only that was more than 3 months ago..................
