RIM Offering U.S. BlackBerry A Ton Of Free Apps
Research In Motion is trying super hard to get the U.S. market to be more friendly to BlackBerry. The latest tactic comes in the shape of more free apps for its loyal users exclusively in the U.S. There are a lot of apps that are being offered for free "compliments of BlackBerry." The best way to find them is to search for the word "compliments." That's how I was able to find the 33 apps that are compatible with my Torch 9860.
Apparently, for some users, up to 35 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. Let us know which apps you're downloading first in the forums!
