Quite a few RIM employees must be burning the candle at both ends. They just ran their latest Port-A-Thon this weekend with a Community and Android variant going on at the same time. Alec Saunders reported that they actually ran the event for 37.5 hours instead of the scheduled 36 just to hit the 15,000+ mark which is impressive. I can take credit for one of those 15,000 and then went to make some celebratory smoothies with my wife.
Either way I cannot wait to see these apps drop. RIM has quite a bit planned for us with BlackBerry 10 and they have one more Port-A-Thon going on this weekend so we will be seeing even more submissions! I am still impressed that RIM has ironed out the approval process together with third party approval houses to handle this influx of apps.
Kudos to all the RIM staffers and fellow Port-A-Thon-ers for making this an awesome event!
