BlackBerry App World coming Smartphone maker RIM has announced the launch of its own version of the Apple App Store, dubbed the BlackBerry App World.
The company says the store will allow BlackBerry users to "find tons of great applications designed for your BlackBerry smartphone in one convenient place - BlackBerry App World™. Personalize your BlackBerry smartphone with games, social networks, personal productivity applications and so much more. Message your best friend, track the stock market, or channel your inner rock god."

Unfortunately, the App World applications will cost more than most applications in the Apple App Store (free to $9.99) and the service will only work in the US, the UK and in Canada.

GOOD, Finally somebody wants to create some compittition. (wow I cant spell)
Wonder what the haters have to say. Personally I have neither smartphone, I use the BJII. Have used Blackberry's in the past and loved them. Maybe with this new news it'll add a much needed rival to the iphone and force the price wars.

Agreed, Apples monopoly is annoying. Apple in itself is getting annoying.
Personally, I have a BB Bold, and can't wait for App World to launch!
Hopefully RIM gets this right and creates so decent competition for iWhatever.
