Hello all, I'll do my best to answer the questions at hand.
RE: Terms and Conditions
I've reached out to the team organizing the Port-a-Thon to get official clarification on that section.
In my opinion (and I am far from a lawyer), I don't think the statement is as broad as is being discussed based on the definition of information.
[quote]Any and all information you provide to RIM in connection with this Program, including but not limited to any ideas, suggestions, improvements or modifications, to or for RIM's products, that are included in your App or that arise from your participation in the Program constitute "Information".[/quote]
Things that begin with "You guys should..." or "I improved performance by..." might fall under the category. Otherwise an open-forum webchat where information is flying freely would simply not be possible. But that doesn't mean free reign over redistributing your products. Again: not a lawyer, didn't write these, but does that interpretation seem reasonable to others?
I do agree that the wording could use a facelift though :-) Ultimately, developers fully own the applications that they submit to App World, and I'll provide the "official interpretation" as soon as I have it.
RE: Quality of Submissions
In testing, there is a subjective element to applications. Games are judged more on the experience they provide than just whether they run. It doesn't mean something simple can't be compelling, but a Tic-Tac-Toe game would require a lot of polish and presentation. A lot of the Construct 2 games I see out there wouldn't have an issue on that front though; the tools do a great job of giving you a lot of power in creating solid applications. If you enjoy the game, chances are others will too.
RE: Target Resolutions
Regarding the resolution, BlackBerry 10 devices are launching with 1280x768 and 720x720 resolutions; you could target just one of those. You can design for 1280x1024 as long as it scales to the device appropriately (i.e. content isn't cut off.) To help with this, there is the Ripple tool which emulates device dimensions as a Google Chrome extension:
