I am really loving the transparency of RIM’s arrival boards for developers. It is a complete 180 from the opaque RIM of the past. Now RIM has announced the date for the release of the final Gold SDK’s for BlackBerry 10 and that date is December 11th, 2012. That means developers will be able to submit their final app updates and submit your app knowing it will run on the commercial BlackBerry 10 OS. Also worth noting is that RIM said there will be another important update before the Gold release on November 29th that includes bug fixes and bring BlackBerry WebWorks HTML5 tools closer in parity to the native tools.
Check out the arrival boards below or the full recap below it done by Lou G. on the DevBlog
