Handango reports on BlackBerry numbers in 2007

Comments

Handango has released their annual Yardstick report, which reports on global smartphone trends. Just like last year, BlackBerry has shown incredible growth. Over 11,000 new applications for BlackBerry were added, a staggering 135% increase over 2006. In downloads, entertainment apps overtook business-oriented content as the most downloaded, getting 17 and 16 percent of sales respectively. The increase in entertainment content might explain why the more consumer-oriented Pearl was one of the most-used devices for content downloads. The top 10 most downloaded apps list follows after the jump…

1. Ringtone Megaplex (ringtone library)
2. Sudoku (puzzle game)
3. Colour Your Trackball (trackball customizer)
