My understanding is that making platinum anytime this year would qualify you for 2009. Perhaps I am wrong but I think you would be platinum until March 2010.

Yes my fault. You will actually be Plat through 2/2010. I always forget about the 2 month overlap. So:

All of 2009 and 2 Months of 2010 is the correct answer.

No because you will get Plat immediately upon reaching the requirements. If you hit Plat in Q1 you will be Plat starting in Q1 (applies to this year and next)and going all the way through till Feb, 2010.
