A few days ago when RIM fully announced the BlackBerry $10K Developer Commitment, a few folks were concerned whether or not Adobe AIR apps were included with that offer. At the time, they were not but now RIM has added them to the mix as well. Any developers building apps using AIR tools (BlackBerry 10 SDK for Adobe AIR, NME, Flash Builder) are eligible for both the Built for BlackBerry and the $10K Developer Commitment programs. Need to now more? Hit the link below to check out the full blog post from RIM.

i love how versitile the apps can be on QNX from c++ to adobe air to android or html 5 or even just native BlackBerry stuff lol its the one system can do all in amazement

We never built a product with such a hardworking chinese child labors ever before. This manufacturing plant in China is proudly housed with children from villages all over china. To create the iPhone, we began to look for a cheaper labors on this earth, marvelously we found miraculous CHINA.

Absolutely amazing cost to produce one iphone like never before.

Just curious, did the Apple ethical factory audits for China find any under-age child labors at all?

If yes, how many?

I think you should pop google with a search. Probably plenty of answers waiting, and people speaking out too.

Clearly there is a lack of Developer input/feedback here on Crackberry, so I decided to head over to the developer blogs. With time for just a brief perusal, I was surprised to find limited dev input there as well. I don't see how this could be viewed as anything but concerning to those responsible for developer relations at RIM! Your thoughts Bla1ze?

Hmmm... All the Air apps I've used seem to run very slowly (specifically directory browsing). Every click is followed by about a 1 second pause :(
