RIM gets ready for launch BlackBerry 10

RIM has been selling apps to BlackBerry smartphone users for long time now via its BlackBerry App World. The company has announced that as part of the preparations for the launch of BlackBerry 10 it has changed the name of BlackBerry App World to BlackBerry World. RIM says that the name change reflects a shift in the type of things that you can purchase from the store.

RIM says that BlackBerry World will have more than just apps for users to purchase -- the new store will also be home to purchasable videos and music. The new name reflects the fact that RIM wants BlackBerry World to be a one-stop shop for the entertainment needs of BlackBerry smartphone and tablet users.

BlackBerry World will support the ability to browse, download, buy, and manage apps via BlackBerry smartphones, the PlayBook tablet, and computers. BlackBerry World will allow users to share their favorite content via BlackBerry messenger, Facebook, and Twitter.
BlackBerry World also supports sharing by tapping NFC embedded BlackBerry smartphones together.

They can call it whatever they like and try to sell anything they want in it. Never in my life I bought a movie or a song from an app store so I cannot care less. What matters is their new OS and whether anyone will buy it. And I'm not so sure about that. I personally don't feel any need to switch to blackberry so first they have to come up with a strong argument - why it's worth to switch. And only after that we can look into apps or no apps world.

Yup same here. It does look like a good OS, but just finally catching up to IOS and Android several years too late doesn't make anyone want to switch. "Look, we finally caught up to 2012 devices" just doesn't do it for me. That and its 2013 now ;)
