RIM has updated the BlackBerry Dev Alpha software so you can now submit your BlackBerry 10 apps into BlackBerry App World. While the perilous state of RIM and BlackBerry might make you wonder if this is worth doing, it would mean you’re working towards earning the $10,000 RIM has promised every developer who builds a "certified" app for the platform.
When RIM rolled out the BlackBerry 10 at BlackBerry World in May the big news for devs was a guaranteed income of $10k for apps developed for the new platform. Anyone who decided to take up RIM's offer can now submit BlackBerry 10 apps to the App World.
Once you upload the app, anyone who owns a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device will be able to try out the app.
RIM made the announcement at the same time as the latest beta release of the new BlackBerry 10 SDKs. These include new push APIs for BlackBerry WebWorks and Adobe Air developers. You can read more details about the new SDKs, including a roadmap of when the SDKs will be released in the ‘gold’ version, on the BlackBerry Developer’s Blog.
According to the blog, the gold release will happen in November, just prior to the launch of the first BlackBerry 10 devices.
