Introducing […] the $10K Developer Commitment: Blackberry really wants to make sure you build apps for it.
If your app earns at least $1,000 USD on its own, but less than $10,000 USD, RIM will pay you the difference between the revenue you earned and $10,000 USD. Developers are only eligible to receive this one time. If your app earns less than $1,000 USD on its own, you don’t qualify. If your app earns more than $10,000 USD – awesome! – you still don’t qualify (and don’t need the money anyway!).
