BlackBerryCool Roundup for the Week of August 16th

Comments

It’s never a dull week here at BlackBerryCool. This week, the biggest news was probably the launch of App World 2.0 which features carrier and credit card billing, as well as 99 cent and $1.99 apps. This is hopefully going to really help push the number of downloads in App World and create a better app economy for BlackBerry. If more developers are making money, the platform will attract more developers which means everybody wins. Other than the App World news, there is a lot of content related to upcoming devices such as the 9670 clamshell aka the BlackBerry Oxford and the Bold 9780. Both of these devices are rocking BlackBerry 6 and it’s always fun to check out unreleased BlackBerrys. Be sure to hit the jump and check out this week in BlackBerry news.
