RIM taking BlackBerry 10 apps now

Written by David Stellmack

Could be March of next year till you can run them

Despite the news that it would be as late as March next year before RIM will release its new BlackBerry 10 devices, word is that the company is now accepting Blackberry 10 apps for the company’s App World store.

The company has assured developers that apps that are submitted now will be tested, reviewed, and ready to be published when the BlackBerry 10 devices are released during the first quarter of 2013. Apps submitted now will also qualify for the “10K Developer Commitment” which guarantees that developers will make at least $10,000 on apps that gross $1,000 in 12 months. The program is a big deal to developers, but apps have to be certified to have a chance at the moment.

While the push to get apps ready for BlackBerry 10 is good news for those still clinging to hope that BlackBerry 10 will turn things around for RIM, we just have to question how the company can afford any additional delays with the new BlackBerry 10 devices. From what we are hearing, the BlackBerry 10 touch screen device will arrive first, but it would be as late as March of 2013. The first BlackBerry 10 device with a keyboard could arrive as soon as a month or two after the BlackBerry 10 touch screen arrives, which isn’t good news for anyone at this point.
