BlackBerry App World 2.0 Images + Details

Yesterday we reported that Research In Motion provided details concerning the new BlackBerry App World 2.0. The information that was released yesterday was very accurate because CIO.com’s Al Sacco was on the scene in New York City for RIM’s BlackBerry App World 2.0 unveiling. All of the things that were mentioned in yesterdays news were true. The hilight of the new App World 2.0 is the ability to support carrier billing. The anticipated upgrade is a huge advancement that will still support PayPal, but BlackBerry users will have the opportunity to use their credit card or directly bill their carrier account for App World purchases. RIM won’t say which wireless carriers will support the option when App World launches in the coming weeks, but Kinsella notes that North America will be first to get carrier billing.  RIM is also introducing BlackBerry ID. BlackBerry ID will enable users to create one master BlackBerry account that can be transferred from device to device, and carrier to carrier. No more haggling through your App World account when you swap devices or carriers. Also, According to RIM, the search function has been intensely improved and should return the most relevant results. The “My World” section of App World will contain more information about the user’s apps, including where they are stored (device memory or storage card),  and what has been been deleted etc. Unfortunately, BlackBerry App World 2.0 is not yet publicly available, but it will be “this summer,” according to App World product manager Alex Kinsella. Be on the lookout sometime in the next few weeks!! Cant wait!   Source: Al Sacco
