Today sees the launch of the BlackBerry App World for the US, UK and Canadian markets. The online app market is accessible to BlackBerrys with a rollerball or touchscreen* (via Wi-Fi and mobile networks). Although frustrating for anyone based outside the three launch countries, BlackBerry’s App World definitely looks the part and might well be worth the wait (update on UAE launch date to follow). Visually very similar to Apple’s App Store, BlackBerry’s version comes with quite a healthy selection of launch apps including Facebook, MySpace, Pandora, Windows Live Messenger and even UNO (which has us a little excited – is that sad?). According to its press announcement, RIM expects over 1,000 fresh apps to be added this week and like Apple they have sent a plea out to app designers everywhere to get busy developing.
