BlackBerry Holiday Wish: Gift cards for BlackBerry App World!



This year for the holidays, I would very much like BlackBerry App World to offer gift cards. While I don’t believe they are going to do it, I think it would be a huge opportunity to introduce new BlackBerry users to the world of downloading apps and opening up the market to more app users.

Everyone else is doing it:


The BlackBerry Cool store offers gift cards in 15, 20, 30, 50, 75, 100, 150 and 200 dollar amounts. The gift card amounts go fairly high so that you can have enough money on the account to get accessories too. App World gift cards wouldn’t have to go that high, but I guess there’s no harm in offering it. One of the features that Mobihand offers that would appeal to App World users is the product-specific gift certificate. I would love to see App World include a feature called “Buy this for a friend.”

Victoria Day statutory holiday in Canada



The Canadian government insists that BlackBerry Cool shut down for a day in order to build our content and relax the creative nodes in our brains.

Victoria Day is a Canadian statutory holiday celebrated on the Monday preceding May 24. It honors Queen Victoria’s birthday.

Since the British have been run out of town, Victoria Day is also commonly called the May 2-4 weekend and it marks the unofficial start of the cottage season where 2-4 cases of beer are consumed by hard working Canadians.

Happy Beer Day.
