App developers refuse to give up on BlackBerry 10

BlackBerry 10 Developer Support

BlackBerry is not in a good place right now, having just posted a billion-dollar loss for the second fiscal quarter. But there is some good news to be found on Friday — according to a report from Digitimes, application developers aren’t yet ready to bail on BlackBerry 10. The Taiwan-based website recently surveyed the scene at the BlackBerry Jam Asia 2013 conference this week, and it spoke to a number of developers who said they plan to continue building and supporting BlackBerry 10 apps. Supporting smaller mobile platforms like BlackBerry 10 and Windows Phone 8 is attractive to a number of developers because the iOS and Android app stores are so noisy that it is difficult to break through. BlackBerry is currently in talks with Fairfax Holdings regarding a $4.7 billion buyout that was proposed earlier this week. If the deal goes through, it is unclear what the future will hold for BlackBerry’s handset business.
