3 billion downloads for BlackBerry App World !

A good news for RIM (Research In Motion):  BlackBerry App World just passed the 3 billion download mark, with 1 billion downloads in the past six months. These downloads includes apps downloaded on BlackBerry smartphone like the  BlackBerry Bold 9930, and the Torch 9860 and its PlayBoook tablet.

Victoria B., spokesperson of Research in Motion said, “On average, 2.5 million apps are being downloaded from Blackberry App World each day. What’s even more important and impressive is that the number of daily downloads continues to increase,” she continued. “It took 786 days to reach the one billion mark, 210 days to reach two billion, and only 176 days to reach the three billion number.”

RIM’s app store currently has about 90,000 apps available for BlackBerry smartphones and the PlayBook. This may not be comparable to Apple’s App Store which features today more than 650,000 apps or the Google Play store offering around 600,000 apps. However, by comparison, Apple, reached three billion download mark just 18 months after launching the App Store for the iPhone and iPod Touch, offering at that time more than 100,000 apps. Android Market (currently Google Play) hit three billion downloads about 27 months after launch.

A few years ago, BlackBerry has been falling behind strong rival smartphone makers like Apple, Samsung, and others, but this new record proves that there are still a large number of BlackBerry users downloading apps and using their platform. Market is still alive !
