The BlackBerry chaps have welcomed the AppStore with open arms, greeting it like it is a long lost friend or as if Kylie Minogue has turned up to their works night out wearing hot pants. The reality is a bit different however as the AppStore is rather threadbare at present except if you are a games fan (ring any bells?). Not so much an App World as an AppVillage at present.
Still it is very much early doors and things can only get better. I did pick up the free Bloomberg finance application, which is the same as is available for the iPhone, and it is rather good. They've also already got their first farting application which is a good sign and they can pat themselves on the back when you consider it took the iPhone months to get the same. BlackBerry got it early doors without having to even break wind……boom boom.
