RIM announces media partners for BlackBerry World
Besides offering a new OS and new hardware, RIM has fixed up its application store, BlackBerry World. The Canadian manufacturer announced its media partners on Monday and these are the companies that will provide content for BlackBerry users. Unlike the separate video store seen with the BlackBerry PlayBook, RIM is integrating the music and video together inside BlackBerry World to produce what it calls "one of the most robust music and video catalogs in mobile today".

 BlackBerry 10 users will get a ton of media to choose from in BlackBerry World
