For all you PlayBook developers out there who are looking to get a free PlayBook, the offer has been extended to March 31st. We’re not sure exactly how intricate of an app you need to have in order to win the free PlayBook, but we’re assuming web links and overly-basic apps won’t get you anything. That being said, with a little bit of coding you can get yourself a sweet new device.

From the guidelines:

“Developers who create a qualifying application for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet prior to its initial North American release are eligible for a free BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. The main criterion to qualify for the free BlackBerry PlayBook tablet offer is to have a qualifying application accepted into BlackBerry App World, subject to certain Terms and Conditions.

Note: New BlackBerry App World Vendor Guidelines have removed the requirement for a notarized proof of identity for individuals. To allow individuals time to register and qualify for the free BlackBerry PlayBook offer, the offer has been extended to March 31, 2011.

You can submit multiple BlackBerry PlayBook tablet apps into BlackBerry App World, but each BlackBerry App World vendor will only qualify for one free BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. Apps will need to meet the BlackBerry App World Vendor Guidelines.”
