RIM gains nearly 20,000 more aps

Written by Nick Farrell



Blackberry 10 might have software


RIM has garnered an additional 19,071 apps for its new Blackberry 10, which means that users will have something to play with when the machine launches.

The apps are mostly ports from Android but are still pretty useful for RIM which needs its Blackberry 10 to be a money spinner. It was RIM's third Port-a-Thon event, which allows developers to earn money and a chance at prizes for submitting apps.
The first Port-a-Thon in mid-December yielded 4,000 apps, while the mid-January Port-a-Thon saw 15,000 apps. Apparently 529 apps were submitted per hour, signalling developers were working hard to claim their $100 per app submitted.

RIM wants 70,000 apps will be in place, when the BlackBerry 10 will be launched globally on 30 January. The fact that RIM is attracting any developer attention at all is being seen that the there is life in the company yet.  RIM has been ripped to bits from competition from Google and the other smartphone company.  It is in such a bad position that even Microsoft thinks it can steal its position in the markets.
