    It's not a rumor, it was announcement by some big shot at RIM. Just Google it. It's unclear as to what exact date -- beginning or end of March or perhaps later? I do know that RIM is accepting developer submissions for its Storefront now.

    Anyway, rest assured, if anyone had any credible information about a release date for the Storefront, there would be so many posts about it that you wouldn't be able to miss them if you tried.

    We do not know much about the plans for the 'app storefront' (this is just it's tentative name) except for what was told at BBDC. We do know that the app center and app storefront will be one entity. They announced that it is has a target march 09 release date. The app center will be controlled by your service provider. The main application screen will provide you with a list of all applications that are available for install from the particular carrier for the specific device model and OS version (It will not display incompatible apps). When looking at an application it will give you a full description and the logo for the specific app. You will be able to access the Options> Advanced Options> Applications screen from within the App center. For the first build, all downloads will be controlled by the browser. The way revenue will be dispersed is that 80% of revenue going back to the developer and the other 20% will be going to Paypal and RIM for infrastructure and administration.

    You can find out this and more by signing up for updates. They only sent me one update since November and it discussed what I mentioned here.


    Just recently RIM has allowed developers the ability to register and once approved, they can start submitting their apps.
