Facebook, Skype, Twitter arrive in BlackBerry World: here are the essential apps
Big names like Skype, Kindle, Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp have all developed native BlackBerry 10 applications and that really is good news.
What’s even better is the fact that some of the biggest game studios have also jumped on the BlackBerry 10 bandwaggon bringing titles like Asphalt 7, Angry Birds Star Wars, Dead Space, Jetpack Joyride, Fruit Ninja and Where’s My Water/Perry at the app catalog on day one.
BlackBerry has showed off the essential apps for each of six categories - games, multimedia, publishing, music, social and of course business. And all the essential apps are right below in the slideshow, take a look.

I am really excited to see what RIM's Blackberry 10 is bringing to the table. I want to see RIM differentiate itself from its competitors. I am seriously considering grabbing a Blacberry 10 device in the next month or so.

Does it have dead trigger and gta?

No, all of us are out of middle school and no longer find video games as appealing on a mobile device, if that's what you're looking for then get a psp vita

Good luck Blackberry! Great start on apps support, better than Windows Phone imo. I love WP UI more though..

you must not own a wp8 device because if you did you'd know that wp8 store has all the apps and games (minus deadpace) said in this article along with 80,000 more apps than bb10. wp8 even has an instagram 3rd party app.

no one wants a 3rd party app they rather the original plus most of the apps on wp you have to pay unlike Android where you can download the apk for free even if its a paid one.

Hahaha Windows phone is a joke! It's a shame that nokia developed a drop box app for the n9 but hasn't made one for their windows platform, and yes 90% of us college students and workersuse drop box, something BlackBerry has

BB10 looks awesome! Can't wait to get it. Love my lumia 920 and WP8 also. IOS just too boring and android software too inconsistent. BB10 nailed it with notifications hub and gestures. Needs a better map tho. Big phones was cool but now it's just ridiculous in my opinion. I use to love my galaxy note but then it was just too damn big for my everyday use.

I have a note II, slightly bigger than the note I and it's not that bad, not even with one hand mate, I guess it would if you wear skinny jeans all the time, but other than that you should be okay, and I speak from experience, skinny jeans and note II don't match
