A couple days ago we heard that 15,000 apps had been submitted to the BlackBerry App World in just 37 hours as developers scrambled to get apps in for BlackBerry 10. The mad dash to submit apps was because RIM had set up a couple "Port-A-Thon" events for developers making apps for BlackBerry 10, and now RIM has announced that the size of the fund has doubled to $2 million for the latest weekend...

Both BB10 & WP8 is (or will be) a failure!!!

Even Apple iPhone were taking a HIT!!!

Hope Blackberry does well, competition can only help the market and us the consumers.

I really hope competition can occur on Google Android open Platform.

This BB10 + WP8 is just a distraction, and will SLOW DOWN the innovation. (REASON: because developer now have to do more TIME to support MORE platform).

CLOSE CAPTION for the title:
RIM ask DEVELOPER to PIRATE MORE android apk files for RIM.

RIM should CHECK THE VALIDITY of the aps BEFORE ACCEPTING IT on their aps market. Android DEVELOPER really don't want to be RIPPED OF by RIM.

Nice move. Now M$ will also come with a larger bounty if this gives the numbers.
