RIM collects 15,000 new BlackBerry apps in a weekend

Tuesday 15 January 2013 | 09:18 CET | News
Research In Motion received around 15,000 applications for BlackBerry 10 in the past weekend. They are currently awaiting approval for publication on the BlackBerry App World. The announcement was made by Alec Saunders, RIM's VP for developer relations, on Twitter. The flood of apps was the result of a developer contest, which offered USD 100 for each approved app and a free BlackBerry Playbook for those submitting 2-5 apps. Developers submitting more than ten apps have a chance to win one of the new BlackBerry 10 devices.
