Research in Motion yesterday announced that the gold version (finalized) BlackBerry 10 SDK is coming on Dec. 11th.

The gold SDK will allow BlackBerry 10 developers to complete their final testing and tweaking and submit their app knowing it will run on the commercial release of BlackBerry 10 smartphone OS.

There will be one other important date before the tools come out of beta – November 29th, 2012. We will release a beta update on November 29th that includes bug fixes, but also an important update for Web developers as our BlackBerry® WebWorks™ HTML5 tools will be updated to offer more functionality and to draw closer to parity with our Native tools.
