Research in Motion today completed its transition from a BlackBerry App World that sells only apps to a BlackBerry World that sells music, movies, and TV episodes as well. RIM previously rebranded its app store in anticipation of moving beyond selling just apps, and the new content choices became available today in the U.S., U.K., Canada, and other markets.
BlackBerry World debuts on the same day that RIM launches its BlackBerry 10 operating system. The new BlackBerry World is home to music sales that range from $0.99 to $1.49 for individual songs, and full albums starting at $6.99. It also sells movies from major studios starting at $4.99 and costing as much as $19.99. Customers can pay $1.99 per episode to watch new TV episodes the day after broadcast.
Existing BlackBerry devices can continue to access BlackBerry World, but not all content will be accessible in all regions.source: BlackBerry World
