BlackBerry developers make more money according to Research In Motion, the company that makes BlackBerry smartphones and the PlayBook tablet. 

"If you put it on our platform, you'll make more money," execs were keen to tell delegates to the company’s developer conference in San Francisco on Tuesday.

RIM says average BlackBerry apps are downloaded 43 per cent more often than an iOS app on Apple and 48 per cent more than the same app on Google's Android platform.

“13 per cent developers have made over $100,000 compared to 1 per cent of developers on the Apple App Store that have made more than $1000,” Alec Saunders, VP of Developer Relations at RIM told the crowd before adding that BlackBerry App World is the second most profitable app store behind Apple’s App Store.  

To put that in perspective BlackBerry 7 smartphones, according to RIM, generate 11x more money when looking at the average revenue per user over BB6 and BB5.
