BlackBerry World Video & Music Categories Removed as 7Digital Launches App


As BlackBerry mentioned earlier they are removing the video and music sections of BlackBerry World and letting that content come from third parties. This is especially so after their deal with Amazon to bring their AppStore and content to BlackBerry 10. In the same move 7Digital has also launched their own 7Digital app on BlackBerry World (an Android Port) so users who purchased content there can easily bring it over. This is all part of BlackBerry focusing on their core strengths and Chen letting partners take over areas where they perform better or are more competitive.

  1. I believe this to be a smart move. I’ve never felt BlackBerry World is a place to be buying media content.

    • I disagree. It was nice to see BlackBerry World bring together different content in one place. I wanted them to also add ebooks! It’s too bad it is a different Appstore now — less control over what info you’re giving out to third parties.

  2. Who was the video provider? Is there a 3rd party app for that now? I liked the $0.99 movie promotions on BB World.

  3. Yeah its a real shame yet I see that BlackBerry needed to focus on what they do best
