RIM supports Android developer's.
Here comes the Android port-a-thon | CrackBerry.com
I see that people either seem to love or hate the Android app environment on BB10. I have always believed that it was mid term/time solution. Needed to ensure enough app during the begining. After the power of the developer tools was discovered native would take over. But that will take time. A smart intermediate solution I believe.
But anyway I'm glad to see RIM support the competitions developers. I look forward to them being our developers as well. Has anyone seen this advertised on Android Central or any other Android Site?

This is mainly just a ploy for inflating the app numbers at launch. I cringe when I think of the quality of the apps that come out of this.

The problem is that all DevAlphas should be exchanged by January 21 and the port-a-thon is held on January 11. So when they get the DevAlpha it's probably already too late if RIM doesn't change the deadline.

I hate android ports. What started out as a crutch became the new normal. These apps look second-rate and choke the OS on the PlayBook, necessitating a reboot. I would gladly have all the roid ports in App World eliminated, and unless the ports to BB10 are of the same quality as native apps, I will continue to avoid them.
