Acknowledging nods go to our good pals at QuicklyBored for this press release. I know we’ve talked about it before, but it really is an exciting time to be a BlackBerry owner. Magmic, the leader in BlackBerry game decelopment, has put together BPlay, a “next-generation mobile content portal exclusively for RIM devices, housing the worldâ€™s top brands and content for Blackberry users. Bplay provides one-click access to AAA games, music and lifestyle applications.” Here’s to copy and pasting, I guess.
This is great, especially with the introduction and capabilities of the Pearl (and hopefully soon – the BlackBerry 8800). Being able to download games, music, ringtones on your “hot, new” device is pretty swell, and BPlay takes all those brand names you dig so much and puts them in one “hot, new” service. Check out the official release after the jump.
