RIM has added a new angle to their marketing of BlackBerry 7 devices in the United States with 17 free promotional apps in BlackBerry App World specifically for BlackBerry OS 7+ devices. From what we are hearing this promotion is US only for now as a test case to see how well it would work for a possible global launch. RIM really picked some solid apps like BeWeather and Fixmo Tools for their BlackBerry 7 upgrade incentive.
Here are some of the included apps in the promotion that runs until May 31st:
- Aces Pool
- Aces Traffic Puzzle Pack
- Fixmo Tools
- iSpeech Caller ID Reader Pro
- Endomondo Sports Tracker Pro
- Screen Muncher
You can find the free apps from your BlackBerry 7 device by searching “Compliments of BlackBerry” in App World. I am sure RIM will have a category setup for it soon.
