Rim launches BlackBerry application store in SA

BlackBerry BoldResearch in Motion (Rim), manufacturer of the BlackBerry range of smartphones, has launched its App World store in SA, the company said in a statement on Wednesday.

App World is Rim’s equivalent of the iTunes Store operated by Apple.

Rim says the on-device application store brings together a “broad mix of free personal and business applications for SA customers”.

BlackBerry App World is designed automatically to present the relevant catalog of applications available for a user’s specific BlackBerry smartphone model and it can be accessed over Wi-Fi and cellular networks.

The software is available for BlackBerry smartphones that include a trackball, touch-sensitive trackpad or touch-screen running BlackBerry OS version 4.2 or higher. Users require an active BlackBerry service plan.  — Staff reporter, TechCentral
