Heads up developers! It's the final day of December and that means January has snuck up on us. While you may have though you had plenty of time to get your apps submitted for BlackBerry 10, there are only 11 short days left to get them in! It's been months of webcasts, hackathons and port-a-thons and now we're in the final stretch. If you want to be sure your apps are approved and ready for BlackBerry 10, you have until 8p EST on January 11th to get them in.

After that, you will have until January 21st to submit eligible apps for the Built for BlackBerry program as part of the $10k Developer Challenge. This means that RIM will pay the difference between your earnings and $10,000 for that app. You can find the full details of the program here if you haven't looked them over already.

We're banking on the amazing developer community to put out some awesome apps for BlackBerry 10. The content in BlackBerry World for BlackBerry 10 is on your shoulders. We can't wait to see what great apps are ready and waiting when we fire up our first BlackBerry 10 devices.

While we'll find out more about more mainstream apps like Skype, Instagram, Netflix and all the "wants" of users at the January unveiling, you can head to porttoblackberry10.com and Tweet your favorite app makers to get their apps up and running on BlackBerry 10.

Ahhhhhhhhh!

I probably won't make it unfortunately, but I'm going to put together most of my waking hours until then trying.

I think anyone doing the BlackBerry 10 Limited Edition Trade-up has up until the 21st of January as well. Better get those apps in developers :)

Actually, I thought we had until 21st to get our apps in for the BB10 device?

I don't plan on asking any money or making money on my app development / support is hobby, but useful to me and I am sure others.

The only thing about this app drive that I see as a negative will be that it is obvious that these submitted apps will be "paid apps". Maybe,just maybe, many of these same apps are free on other platforms which will in turn deter people from switching platforms. So the plus side is more apps available and the downside will be the risk of RIM not getting the hardware sales that we all hope for and expect. But, hey, its a start. BB10!

Who cares if a majority of them are paid apps and not free, as long as there's quality apps in good quantities, people will buy them.

For those that constantly complain about the lack of apps that aren't yet on the blackberry playbook and future blackberry 10, DONT JUST SIT ON YOUR ASS, BUG THOSE DEVELOPERS!!!!!!!!
