RIM says will still make keypads for BlackBerrys

Research in Motion Ltd. (RIM) is offering developers a guaranteed $10,000 cash payment for any app the company certifies for its Blackberry 10 handset. The move is aimed at encouraging developers to build programs for the handset's forthcoming system refresh, which is largely incompatible with Blackberry's existing software. Alec Saunders, RIM's vice president of developer relations, made the payment guarantee announcement on Wednesday during the company's BlackBerry World 2012 annual developer conference in Orlando, Florida.

In order to qualify for the cash payment, an app must have earned a minimum of $1,000 on its own, and must meet the company's quality requirements. Saunders said there were now 99,500 software packages in the company's App World store, up sharply from 70,000 at the beginning of the year.  Nearly one-in-four were purpose built for RIM's Playbook tablet, he said.
