Free Playbooks For Android App DevelopersS

Here's some good news if you like to tinker with creating Android apps in your spare time: submit one to the BlackBerry App World before February 13th, and you can get a free Playbook. That's another great sign that RIM is doing well, eh?

Announced in a tweet by Alec Saunders, RIM's VP of developer relations, the scheme means all developers — professional or amateur — need do is submit their app then email its name to developeroutreachprogram@rim.com. Given that RIM recently opened up its device to support a (limited) selection of Android apps, this suggests that apps are currently a little thin on the ground. One thing's for certain: RIM definitely won't run out of stock to give away. [Alec Saunders via SlashGear]
