Apparently, for some users, up to 17 apps have been made available compliments of BlackBerry and they're not too shabby either. These apps are available to its U.S. user base until May 31st. If you're thinking that's a long time, it's because it is. Almost 3 months of free downloads is sure to be costing RIM a pretty penny when they have to reimburse the developers.
This is obviously a move to try to get more people to buy into the BlackBerry 7 device lineup as one of the requirements to download these apps is having a BB7 smartphone. So if you're in the good ol' US of A, get to App World and start downloading.
