RIM lowers drawbridge on BB10 app submissions

RIM now taking BlackBerry 10 app entries, hopes floodgates will open.

Built for BlackBerry

It's official, BlackBerry 10 developers: RIM has declared open season for BB10 app submissions. A recent post on the company's development blog confirms that RIM is now accepting entries for applications that specifically target the long-anticipated BlackBerry 10 operating system.

The post in question also lays out how to begin the submission process to the BlackBerry storefront as well offering links to the Beta3 Developer SDK, if you'd like to get in on the coding action. In addition, RIM reminds potential developers that any app deemed worthy of the Built for BlackBerry program and earns $1,000 over 12 months could net a RIM payout of $10,000.

RIM says it will also showcase select apps it approves and give them prominent carousel placement in the BlackBerry App World marketplace. Sounds like incentive to me, or that RIM is feeling desperate. Either way, it's time to get cracking, folks.
