You read that right! According to Alec Saunders, VP of Developer Relations at RIM, Android developers who submit their apps to BlackBerry App World by February 13th will get a free BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. Tools available for Android developers include:
- Eclipse Plugin
- Online Tool
- Command-line tools
To help with the process of submitting your Android apps to BlackBerry App World, RIM strongly recommends the following:
- Before submitting your Android application to BlackBerry App World, please make sure to remove all mention of the word “Android” from your application. Both in the application description and the application itself.
- Please remove all links to Android Market from within your application.
- When submitting your Android application to BlackBerry App World, please make sure to select a minimum BlackBerry PlayBook OS of 2.0.
- Please make sure your application is signed. For more information on code signing, please view the code signing documentation on the BlackBerry Runtime for Android Apps webpage (linked here).
