RIM is offering apps worth Rs 2,500 for free with Blackberry Curve 9220. As part of the launch in India, BlackBerry Curve 9220 customers can download a selection of apps worth Rs 2,500 for free from BlackBerry App World.
This move is aimed at making apps affordable for entry level smartphone users and also to counter the Android Play Market, which has more free apps compared to BlackBerry’s App World.
The offer is valid until 30 June and includes a wide range of apps that will roll out in a phased manner, including utilities, games and others. Pencil Camera, Photo Studio Pro, Horoscope Oracle – Follow Your Lucky Stars, Drive Safely Pro and Ultimate Cricket are a few of the popular apps that will be available through this promotional offer. However, out of these only a few apps are actually paid for outside of the offer. These we have listed here.
