Interesting. Air is excluded, too.

You should start porting them to Cascades or WebWorks.

I never researched other ways to develop for bb. Android seemed good to me, but I'll take a look at Cascades. Thanks @soaman :smileyhappy:

Re: New blackberry offer: All Aboard BlackBerry Port-A-Thon

Good question. They look for time that application as submitted. Sometimes is necessary send mail for bb to say that submisson is for any offer, but i think they are recognizing this automatically now :smileyhappy:
