RIM to launch new BlackBerry app store

From an article in the Globe and Mail:

BlackBerry users suffering from iPhone application envy will soon be
able to purchase games and other software directly from their coveted
devices through a new online marketplace from Research In Motion Ltd.

I’m not suffering any iPhone envy, I think Apple is cool and way better than Microsoft but definitely over-hyped and over-priced.  I do agree this is a great move on RIM’s part: not everyone wants to search the internet for new software or remember where they got stuff from.  Having it all in one place makes it easy to find – it becomes a feature.  To compete with Apple this is a feature that RIM needs.

And as a hacker, hopefully one or two workable bits of my code will show one day!
