RIM just did something that I believe is a pure stroke of genius: App developers that get their PlayBook Apps (Adobe AIR) approved before launch are going to get a free Blackberry PlayBook. They would of course have to pass whatever insane requirements RIM imposes, but it is still one hell of a motivator to get developers interested in the PlayBook platform. This will probably offend hippies, freetards and iPhone/iPad programmers used to Apple abusing them, but who cares?
I hope they get away with it.
