Just one day before RIM is expected to launch the BlackBerry App World
during co-CEO Mike Lazaridis' key note speech at CTIA, a third party has launched their own app store for BlackBerry devices. MobiHand, a third-party mobile software distributor, is offering over 5,000 free and paid apps that are already in the company's inventory. The store will offer the "Deal-of-the-Day" which will provide a big haircut on one of the top selling apps each day. We must say "Well played" to the guys at MobiHand for stealing some of the thunder from RIM on the eve of the expected announcement. BlackBerry owners should be able to support at least two app stores open at the same time. The only question is, can MobiHand pay the price necessary to keep their store in the face of 'Berry users? For those who want to check it out, you can visit the store at mobihand.com/appstore from the browser on your BlackBerry. And yes, the touchscreen Storm does support the Mobihand store.
