BlackBerry Users Can Now Buy Apps From Their Desktop
RIM today announced the launch of the BlackBerry App World Web site. The BlackBerry App World lets users browse the BlackBerry catalogue and purchase apps directly from a desktop Web browser. Apps are then synchronized to the user's BlackBerry device. Nokia offers a similar service with its Ovi Store. Apple offers PC purchases through its iTunes software, but not through a Web site, and Google's Android platform lets you browse apps online, but purchases must be made through a handset in the current version of Android.
