BlackBerry App World doubles the content
RIM’s app storefront, called App World, has now doubled its content, making a total of 2000 applications available to its customers. The store has been up and running for about three and a half months now and according to Jeff McDowell, BlackBerry’s vice president of global alliances, the number of offered apps should start to grow faster when the service launches in Italy, France, Germany and Spain later this month. Moreover, availability in countries like Brazil and India should also follow shortly.

Interestingly, while Apple’s App Store currently hosts about 50,000 apps, Mr. McDowell has said that “[it doesn’t matter] whether it’s 40,000 or 2,000, you’ve still got a broad range of choice,” which is kind of funny, don’t you think?
