RIM waiving $200 vendor approval fee for PlayBook developers


PS. I like how RIM quotes Crackberry twice, as though they’re some kind of legitimate authority on all things Blackberry. I get that they’re a huge BB blog/forum/review/site, but “crack” “berry” really?  Their name insinuates bb users with cocaine. Um, I’ll pass.

Moving on. RIM is waiving its normally $200 vendor certification fee for app developers.  Apparently just a couple months ago it would cost a user $200 + a long wait of a few weeks to find out whether or not they had been approved as an app developer.  Now it’s free and turn around time for hearing back from RIM is a few days’ time.  (I found this out from pouring through pages of developer forums on blackberry.com).  Under this deal you can submit up to 10 apps before you have to reapply.  Risk-free.

I wonder what other freebies RIM will offer in the coming weeks…

  1. This is great news. However, they still require a paypal account for verification, and $1 credit card pre-auth for signing keys.

    I think they still charge $200 for submissions of more than 10 apps.
    I’m waiting approval for submission of this app, fingers crossed ! :)
