$4 million to be paid out by BlackBerry to developers participating in Port-A-Thon
With the all-touch BlackBerry Z10 launched along with the QWERTY-equipped BlackBerry Q10, it is time for BlackBerry to make good on the promised payouts. The company said with 40,000 apps ported over, the results topped expectations and as a result, BlackBerry is on the hook for payments exceeding $4 million. At this point, BlackBerry has contacted all eligible developers by email to receive payment or shipping information. Payments to developers will continue past June 30th, but no new payments will be "initiated" after that date.
BlackBerry is planning to hold its first virtual event for developers later this year. The focus will be on how to make developer's games more successful.
