  • RIM Partners With Android App Store, Mall, To Bring More Apps To BlackBerry 10

    Branko from the BlackBerry Developer Group Balkan has just let us in on a nice little piece of news. The Android App Store, Mall, has partnered with RIM to help developers port their apps to the BlackBerry 10 platform. If you aren't aware, Mall is one of the top Android app stores. So this is huge for RIM! To be able to extend out to all of these developers through a hot developer channel.

    To help the Android developers, there is a new website that will help them test, port and publish their apps. Developers will also be able to participate in prize drawings for PlayBooks, Dev Alphas, and more.

    Here is the email from that was sent out to their registered developers:

    "Extend your reach with BlackBerry 10

    Dear Developer,

    We are pleased to inform you that we have established strategic cooperation with Research In Motion™, to support their new BlackBerry 10 platform and open a new market for our developer community within Blackberry App World™.

    Did you know that BlackBerry App World™ is available in over 160 markets, supporting 26 currencies, 7 languages and 75 million subscribers? This is an excellent opportunity for you to extend your reach to this audience completely for free. And the best part is, it doesn’t require a greater effort than making yourself a cup of coffee! Remember, larger audience translates into higher App exposure, popularity and profits.

    We are very excited about BlackBerry 10 as an open development platform which supports easy porting of Android apps, in most cases with no additional effort! You can submit your Android application to App World and have it converted to Blackberry 10 with a couple of clicks only.

    To promote this great new platform, we have developed an online wizard minisite through which you will be able to register and convert your apps in 3 quick steps:

    Each registered developer which has successfully converted and submitted their Android app to BlackBerry App World™ through this minisite will participate in our prize draw, with hundreds of prizes available including BlackBerry™ PlayBooks, BlackBerry™ Dev Alpha devices and many more!

    We are glad that we can present you this exclusive opportunity as our member and please continue updating and submitting new apps to our mall. We will soon surprise you with many more opportunities to extend your reach and monetize on your apps!

    Yours Sincerely, Community Support Team"

    Let's thank the BlackBerry Developer Group Balkan, as they were the ones who connected RIM and together to make this partnership happen.
