The new on-device application store brings together a broad mix of free personal and business applications for Latin American users to discover.

‘The BlackBerry platform provides a truly unparalleled mobile experience for millions of people and we are thrilled to enhance that experience with a new app store that helps connect consumers with developers and carriers,’ said Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-CEO.

‘BlackBerry App World aggregates a wide variety of apps in a way that makes it very easy for consumers to discover and download the apps that suit them while preserving the appropriate IT architecture and controls required by our enterprise customers.’

The store is designed to automatically present the relevant catalog of applications available for a user’s specific BlackBerry smartphone model.
