RIM contacting Devs to confirm Free Playbook; UPDATE! shipping confirmation emails also going out!

It looks like RIM is contacting developers who submitted an application during the free Playbook submission period! The email looks like this:

Your app submission has been successfully received by the team at BlackBerry App World, putting you on the road to qualify for the free BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet Offer 2012. The BlackBerry App World team reviews each app based on the Vendor Guidelines and we’ll notify you as soon as we have determined if your app qualifies for the free tablet offer.

When your app is approved, you will receive an additional email notice requesting a shipping address for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.

If you receive notice that your app has not been accepted, don’t give up. You can modify and resubmit that app for approval as long as the app was originally submitted during the qualifying period. We will do our best to promptly review each application submission. However, we cannot guarantee a decision within a specific timeframe.

We appreciate the time and effort you have put into developing an app for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. We’re pleased and excited to have your applications on our platform and look forward to shared success and a long relationship.

Happy coding!

The BlackBerry Developer Program team

P.S. You are welcome to submit multiple entries for consideration, but only one BlackBerry PlayBook tablet will be awarded per registered vendor in BlackBerry App World.

If you didn't get an email, don't despair - the entry period isn't even over yet!

UPDATE: If your app has been accepted for publication to BlackBerry App World, you'll soon be getting an email like this one:

We’re pleased to inform you that your app submission qualifies for the free BlackBerry PlayBook tablet offer.

To receive your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, there is one additional requirement. Please complete the shipping information requested here (link removed).

You’ll receive notification when your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is about to ship. Thanks for the time and effort you’ve invested in creating an app and participating in this offer. Good luck in your app development pursuits!

Warm regards,

The BlackBerry Developer Program team

Hopefully plenty of other Developers have gotten this email as well. I'll write more about it later, but for now I need to fill out some shipping info!
