If you are an Android Dev or know an Android dev who lives in the San Francisco area make sure to give them a heads up about this. We just heard that the App Express booth RIM has at DevCon San Francisco is open to everybody. That means that any Android developer can bring their app to port to the BlackBerry PlayBook with RIM’s assistance during the conference. Here is how RIM describes it:
App Express opens on Monday, October 17 and runs through Thursday, October 20. You don’t even have to be registered for BlackBerry DevCon Americas. Come by and try out App Express on us, and then stick around for the rest of the content, insights, networking and more at the conference.
We found out that means that you will get a free pass to the rest of the conference after you successfully port your app. From what we hear that means you also get a free BlackBerry PlayBook like any other BlackBerry DevCon attendee. Sweet deal right? Keep in mind you need to sign up for free BlackBerry code signing keys which can take up to 2 hours to get so get those first.
