This spring RIM offered a free PlayBook device to any developer who got his PlayBook app accepted in Blackberry App World store.
I know many of you didn’t get your apps done in time to qualify for this, but there is no need to be sad. RIM is running a developer challenge until August 12th. What does this mean to you? Well, if you are a Flash developer you can submit applications to the Best Adobe Flash/AIR app category. What can you win? Money and or fame :) They offer over $3 million in prizes.
You can read more and register for the contest here.
PS. A while ago I released my AIR application for splitting a restaurant bill to Android Market and BlackBerry App World. The stats are pretty interesting: I get about 10x more downloads on BlackBerry store than Android Market (my application has excellent reviews on both stores). Of course this has to do with the fact that PlayBook market is younger and there aren’t so many apps in there. I think this is an opportunity for developers/companies to get “THE APP” status for their apps :)
