App World is here! RIM's application store is now live
As expected, RIM's official application store for BlackBerry devices, App World, is now live and ready for downloading on certain 'Berry devices. So far, we have successfully downloaded a free app for Bloomberg News onto a BlackBerry Storm. App World is broken down into 13 separate categories ranging from Maps and Navigation to Sports and Recreation. 234 applications, by quick count, are initially available with some apps free of charge and a minimum of $2.99 for paid downloads. To have App World downloaded on your RIM device, from your BlackBerry browser (Storm owners need to make sure their browser is set on 'BlackBerry') go to BlackBerry.com/appworld. Happy hunting!

A cell phone is a device used to communicate with other people...NOT a social statement. If you think that you are in some sort of elite club because of the name on your cellphone you are a tiny, tiny little man. Thank you for proving to me how much of a mindless drone you really are. You are the biggest sucker of them all Godfather.

Actually Godfather NEVER said anything about his BB Storm making him uber-cool (although we all know he his, LOL!) He merely stated that you owned a shitty, worthless PDA. There's absolutely NOTHING in his post to convey ANYTHING about his/yours/my phone as a social statement. But thanks for playing heavybreathing. Now why don't you get back to doing what your screen name implies...jerking off;)

You're obviously not smart enough to be part of this conversation. When you end every message you say with "BB Storm FTW" you are implying that since you have a Blackberry you are in an elite club and are better than someone who has...say..a Blackjack 2. Sorry, you're not smart enough to be part of this conversation...I suggest you go back to /b/ and fap to cp like you belong.

What an idiot statement man. I don't care much for the BJ2, but join the real world and get out of your Verizon and BB Storm fantasy bull. Read consumer reports. BJ2 was rated best Smartphone of 2008 for value (Best Smartphone for the buck). Stop making ridiculous statements like you know everything. Reality Check: You Don't. And I am sorry, the Storm will Never Ever take the Win... just won't ever happen.

I knew someone was going to ask regardless. I came back to the article just to see who would. I can honestly say I'm not surprised it was you vzw fanman. No just kidding but I knew someone was going to ask. And my mother says your welcome YouLostTheGame. She said she's grateful that someone finally thanked her.
