BB10 Developers Given Less Than 2 Months to Finalize Apps

By - Source: BlackBerry | B 8 comments

BlackBerry 10 SDK arriving on December 11.

Research in Motion has announced the release date for the final version of the BlackBerry 10 SDK.

Available on December 11, developers will have less than two months to finalize their applications before the upcoming mobile operating system launches on January 30, followed by the introduction of the first BlackBerry 10 smartphones a month later.

Apps will be required to be submitted to the BlackBerry App World store by January 21 in order to be eligible for RIM's revenue program. The company's app scheme aims to deliver $10,000 to the developers of approved applications.

A SDK beta update is also due to to arrive come November 29, which will give web developers significant updates, as well as delivering bug fixes.

The app submissions process opened last month for BlackBerry 10, while over 50 carries are currently testing the mobile platform for their networks.

    I don't see too many developers being interested in investing any kind of effort into a DOA platform.

    Working under those kinds of time constraints with little justifiable reward for all that rushing would turn most away. Oh, and not to mention the fact that the Blackberry ecosystem is so depleted now that it's not even worth developing anything for it.

    Just like tablets that are less than 10" since this is the minimum size and anything below are DOA.

    I regreted buying my BB9360. The OS is just plain bad... It's something like Ubisoft DRM, you need your own BB internet service, plan and crap. Damn you BB

    It shouldn't be bad if they didn't change the SDK that much. I have no idea about Blackberry though since I focus more on Android and iOS

    Considering that most devs had 7 months until now, and a further 2 months to finalize their apps, I think RIM is being very generous.

    What a misleading title. Shame Tom's has fallen to this sensationalist journalism.

    Take it from me ... sizzle sells the sausage.

    Thats marketing speak for putting spin on a story to get it to sell (be read).

    Guaging an appropriate angle on a story to get people to read it is an important part of journalism ... be it tech "hack" journalism or any other.

    Content can often be secondary.

    That is why these guys consider Mike Magee a god.

    Look up wood screws and NVidia for an example of Charlie's fine work - as that one had every geek jumping a while back Eddie.
