BlackBerry 10 gets 19,071 new app submissions in last two days; stock soars 11% in Canada
15,000 more were sent in over a 37 hour period. That was followed by the last Port-a-Thon which just ended with 19,071 apps sent to RIM in just 36 hours, according to a tweet sent out by RIM. That works out to 529 apps per hour or $52,900 from RIM's coffers.
Meanwhile, while the U.S. markets were closed on Monday to observe the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Canadian markets were open and the continued good news about RIM topped by the video we showed you comparing the BlackBerry Z10 quite favorably with the Apple iPhone, got investors in a buying mood. Last week, we showed you the Island Reversal on RIM's stock chart which is a bullish pattern. On Monday, the shares soared nearly 11% to close at $17.41 CD, up $1.70 CD. Of course, RIM has a long way to go to reach its all time high which was above $140 USD in 2008.

I bet all the BB10 haters feel silly now. All of this is happening before it even releases. If just the leaks and demos are getting people excited, you can only imagine how the official release will get people going.

Haha no kidding man! I'm a current user of a Galaxy note II and even I will be buying one because of all the features it offers, none the less smooth UI and fast Web browser.

Seems me and a few others on here werent the only ones liking what we saw recently...lol. Ppl forgot......before everyone called all smartphones an iPhone....they called them all Blackberries....
My daughter wanted a Blackberry first, then iPhone before she started liking Android. She was 11 or 12 at the time...
Still a big Android fan.....but its always good to have other choices you may want if you ever decided to switch. It was WP.....now its WP and Blackberry. Sorry iPhone...I tried ya. You ok....just not my cup of tea. You got real nice looking apps tho.
