RIM Trots Out Free Apps to Appease Subscribers
Research In Motion today announced that customers affected by last week's BlackBerry service outage will be given free access to a number of premium applications, totaling more than $100 if the apps were purchased normally. The free downloads will begin October 19 and last for four weeks. Some of the initial titles available include games such as SIMS 3, N.O.V.A, and Bejeweled; and lifestyle apps such as Photo Editor Ultimate, iSpeech Translator, and Vlingo Plus. RIM said more free premium apps will be announced for the promotion soon.
