Research in Motion (RIM) is set to open its forthcoming BlackBerry 10 operating system to developers next month, with the launch of the gold version of the BlackBerry 10 SDKs.

RIM confirmed the gold BlackBerry 10 SDKs will be released on 11 December, over a month before the OS official 30 January 2013 launch.

The release will allow developers to run their final tests on their apps before submitting them for approval to RIM.

RIM also announced plans to release an update to the beta version of BlackBerry 10 on 29 November.

The update promises to include a number of unspecified bug fixes and updates to BlackBerry WebWorks HTML5 tools.

The release marks the final stage of RIM's ongoing push to increase developer interest in the BlackBerry platform.

Developer interest in the BlackBerry platform has waned in recent years as sales of BlackBerry devices have plummeted.

The lack of interest, combined with its poor sales has been cited as a key factor contributing to the company's ongoing poor financial performance.

With RIM banking on BlackBerry 10 to revive its fortunes, it is vital it gets developers on board.
