RIM has mentioned that they are working with Appcelerator to bring their popular Titanium Mobile cross platform environment to the PlayBook and BlackBerry 10. Today’s announcement from RIM and Appcelerator brings that one step closer to fruition. Appcelerator has made public the Github repository for the current preliminary build of Titanium Mobile for BlackBerry. They plan on having an official prerelease in December in prep for BlackBerry 10’s launch. No word on a gold release.
Appcelerator and RIM have a promotion going for the first 1000 developers who port over their Titanium Mobile app to BlackBerry 10. Those first 1000 developers will receive one free year of Appcelerator Cloud Services and Analytics (worth $4500) along with a free BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha. You do not need to actually publish the app to make it available but rather only need to get your app draft in App World. I am sure RIM is doing this because they want to get Titanium developers on board as fast as possible even though the final version to iron out bugs may not be available.
