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.
