Re: $2 Million in Rewards Available for the BlackBerry 10 Last Chance Port-A-Thon

I am very sceptical that all 15 000 apps would be reviewed few days before 25 January.

Re: $2 Million in Rewards Available for the BlackBerry 10 Last Chance Port-A-Thon

RIM has engaged some test houses to help - so rather than just the regular approvals team, there's some outside help to get the job done.

See Alec's twitter post about it here:

Further, every Port-A-Thon so far has had the details/deadlines slightly changed to be more lenient. I don't see why they wouldn't do the same thing here if they had to :smileyhappy:

Re: $2 Million in Rewards Available for the BlackBerry 10 Last Chance Port-A-Thon

I guess what it comes down to is that RIM won't turn around and say "ah, you know what, we couldn't get through all your submissions so we're just cutting it off here for rewards". It's not like they have a deadline to pay out financial rewards by...

Everything will work out!

Re: $2 Million in Rewards Available for the BlackBerry 10 Last Chance Port-A-Thon

To follow this up, we just got confirmation from Lou Gazzola from RIM in the webcast that the deadline will be pushed back if the initial review by RIM isn't complete in time. Further, like the other Port-A-Thon's, that there will be time for resubmissions.
