RIM puts a $10,000 guarantee on certified apps
Today RIM said it is putting its money where its mouth is by offering a $10,000 revenue guarantee to lure in developers for BlackBerry 10. Basically, if your app is certified, RIM guarantees that you will make $10,000 the first year or it will cut you a check for the difference.

The certification program is intended to weed out the junk that often plagues various app stores. There is a “nominal” fee to get your app certified and your app needs to have earned at least $1,000 on its own in order to be eligible. The actual certification will be done by an independent third party.

RIM said all of this is part of its $100 million investment into the BlackBerry ecosystem.

I have faith in them too, but one thing they need more than apps... First and formost, is the fast hardware found in iPhones and highend Android devices. Seems their devices are always a bit late.

You don't necessarily always need the fastest hardware to have the fastest phone. Look at WP for example. Single core phones run as smooth as anything I've ever used. That being said, RIM needs a huge boost in the hardware department.

Does anybody know whether if this is per app or per each developer's first app?
