Blackberry App World Is Officially Launched

April 1st, 2009


Research in Motion has finally released the long awaited Blackberry App World to go head to head with Apple’s App Store.  Details about Blackberry App World are as follows quoted from RIM’s website:

To ensure that your BlackBerry® smartphone will support BlackBerry App World™, it must have the following system requirements:

  1. BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.2 or higher
  2. BlackBerry smartphones with trackballs or SurePress™ touch screen
  3. BlackBerry App World is only available to customers in US, Canada and UK and may not be available on all networks

To Find this application to add to your blackberry device you will need to go to the mobile blackberry homepage which is found at Click on The blackberry App world link and download it to your smartphone.  The Total File Size is 523 KB.

I personally just downloaded it and its a sick little application. After a few days of usage I’ll do a full review on it and post back my findings. One thing I have noticed is you will need a active PayPal account to pay for any applications you wish to purchase.

But the big question is can it combat the App Store on iTunes? We’ll have to wait see.
