Once upon a time we relished in the MeeGo dream. A linux based Open Source OS on your tablet, netbook, TV and of course the car (and anything else) and Qt was the easy to use Development framework to build all the glorious Apps with. Sadly that didn't happen as Intel and Nokia split and went their merry way and that stalled MeeGo. Qt has had its own difficulties and a sense of lost direction.
MeeGo is waiting for a comeback with JollaMobile to come onto the scene but what about mobile developers that want their Qt Apps to live and breath ? Well Research In Motion (RIM) are today the largest company who are actively Embracing and Pushing Qt.
How does the BlackBerry 10k commitment work? If you earn a minimum of $1,000 USD on your application over 12 months then RIM will pay you the difference between what your application earned and $10,000 (terms and conditions apply).
What you need to do ?
Are you ready to show us what you got? It’s simple. Just create a BlackBerry 10 app and get it approved through the Built for BlackBerry program. If you earn² a minimum of $1,000 USD on your app over 12 months and you comply with the 10k Developer Commitment Terms and Conditions, RIM will pay the difference between your earnings and $10,000 USD for that app¹.
