BlackBerry 10: 15,000 New Apps in Two Days

Blackberry / RIMResearch In Motion’s BlackBerry 10 application marketplace will have thousands of more programs, thanks to two events the company ran over the weekend. The events saw RIM net 15,000 app submissions for BlackBerry 10 within a period of 37.5 hours, according to company vice president of developer relations Alec Saunders. The events were called Portathons, with one focusing on the BlackBerry 10 Community and the other on Android developers. In either case, developers were urged to port their previously developed applications to BlackBerry 10. RIM has held similar events in the past.

To get more developers to participate, RIM gives them $100 per approved app.
