There's nothing like a good 'ole cash incentive to kick you up the backside into developing an app. That's exactly what RIM is offering developers in order to generate high-quality apps for its BB10 platform.
That means every application that makes the BlackBerry Quality Certification grade before BB10 launches, will put $US10,000 ($9677) into the pockets of its developers.
There are a couple of key conditions that have to be met first. Firstly, the app needs to tick the high-quality box and be given the thumbs up by a third party. Secondly, developers will need to generate at least $US1,000 on their own in order to qualify for their BlackBerry payment. After that, if an app doesn't earn $US10,000 in its first year, RIM will write you a cheque to cover the difference.
Bolstering its commitment to its developers and ensuring its BB10 OS arrives with a fanfare, RIM also announced it's set to invest a cool $US100 million into the BB10 ecosystem over the coming year.
Here's everything you need to know about the new operating system.
