This incredible news is not fake.
A similar offer was avaiable at blackberry during the Port-a-thon event , where i develop a lot of application and i was paid for the most of them.
The money that i gain thanks to that event was so usefull for my university taxex for me and my brother so blackberry literally offered me a “piece of my future”.
Now the same offer was relased from microsoft for windows 8 in “stealt way” cause no publicity or promotion was made for this event. [ Why ? ] During this time in my university some msndablabla guy offer me a w8 tablet for 7 applications to give to him. [....weird]
what is going on? are someone scared about pay developers?
Blackberry was not scared and i was so pleased to crete app for them.
this is my own thought
