Is RIM's $10,000 developer commitment enough incentive for you to consider app development for the BB10 platform?

Nope.  I would consider $25,000 the low end budget for any app, and that's a simple app reusing a lot of code on a platform that designers are already familiar with.  Most quality apps cost much more than that to develop.  I would put the cost of most apps at $50K-$150K (that's what a customer would pay, not actual cost), so $10K is not going to do it for high quality apps.  It is worth something to know that you aren't going to totally loose your shirt with the $10K commitment, but to me it's kind of like insurance with a high deductible.  I would be interested to see the sales numbers for BB apps, then you could get a better idea of how much of a chance you are taking with BB app development.
