The Android portathon was limited to $500,000 in rewards (5000 x $100) but they received much more than 5000 apps.

Of course some individuals may port more than 20, in which case they will only get the max of $2000.
But what if the total exceeds the $2 Million of rewards that was set aside. Does it mean the remainder don't get a reward?
Good that this limits RIM's expenses, but considering they even extended the portathon last time, does it mean RIM actually will pay out to everyone even if it exceeds their limit they set aside?
Well, either way, as I have said before, if they spent $100 per app. Getting all Google store apps onto BB10 would only cost about $70,000,000. Which is still only a fraction of their $1 Billion dollar plan. So expense wise, I don't think RIM is too worried about attracting too many devs/apps.
