designing for touch screen only

Is it possible to design and submit a bb 10 application suitable for touchscreen devices only? I don't want to create my application for non touchscreen devices - is this possible or would it be rejected for not catering for 720 x 720 res?

Re: designing for touch screen only

You certainly can, if you're just asking in general.

If you also want to get the Built For BlackBerry certification, however, you will at some point be required to update the app to add support for the 720x720 screen and possibly other features unique to the keyboard phones. (At least, if the app isn't one that would for some reason be useless on the smaller screen.)

Full details on when that might be isn't yet known. I think the Terms and Conditions for the BFB program talk about how long you'd have to submit the update, etc., if that's what you're talking about.
