RIM has extended it’s deadline on their Playbook giveaway to developers, pushing the deadline to March 2nd. The original offer was meant to give Playbook’s away to developers that submit applications to the Market, but the interest has been “overwhelming”. Just for a moment of perspective, could you imagine if Apple did this, or even Motorola? People would learn how to program and submit applications just to get the free device. Apple would likely double the number of applications in the store in one month.
