This is not an official announcement but RIM has been telling us for ages that carrier billing was coming soon. RIM even had to raise their cut of purchases to account for the higher cost of carrier billing. According to PhoneScoop the time is almost upon us with the release of App World 2.0.
According to them App World 2.0 will bring:
- Carrier billing so you are not limited to PayPal
- A new BlackBerry ID which lets you carry your purchases over from one device to another. RIM has been needing this for ages. Maybe we will finally get a central account.
- Improved search function with better results
- The My World page will contain better information
- Built in QR support for barcodes so developers can advertise their apps with QR codes
There is no word on in app purchases but hopefully that will be included in the update. So what do you think of this update? We will let you know as soon as it is released!
