Expect an app-heavy BlackBerry
Canadian smartphone maker Research In Motion (Nasdaq: RIMM) has attracted 15,000 apps for its new BlackBerry installment, BlackBerry 10.
App developers were offered incentives to port their programs to the BlackBerry 10 platform. RIM offered $100 for each app ported and approved for sale at the BlackBerry 10 app store, up to certain limits.
The results are good news for the company, which has an operation in Morrisville.
The new phone launches Jan. 30. In the meantime, Internet leaks have shown a prototype of a touchscreen-only BlackBerry, as well as a model with a keyboard.
