What helps to determine if a platform will be good to transition to are the number and the types of apps available in its ecosystem. With iOS and Android numbering more than half a million apps in their stores, it certainly is no wonder that they are the two most popular platforms around. That being said, it looks like RIM wants to play catch up and according to RIM’s Alec Saunders, head of developer relations, he was quoted as saying, “We’re gearing up to handle not just a few apps coming in, but we’re building a team to handle tens of thousands per month, ahead of that launch,” in a quote given to The Star. It will be interesting to see what sort of apps will make their way onto Blackberry 10, and it will also be interesting to see if the current popular apps will be porting over as well. Either way let’s hope that this optimism by RIM will not be anti-climactic.
