Today details about Research In Motion's BlackBerry App World 2.0 became available. The heavily revised App World service offers a number of new features. The most important benefit of App World 2.0 is support for carrier billing. App World will still support PayPal, but BlackBerry users will have the opportunity to use their credit card or directly bill their carrier account for App World purchases. BlackBerry App World 2.0 also sees some minor usability enhancements. According to RIM, the search function has been drastically improved and should return more relevant and better results. The "My World" part of Apps World will contain more information about the user's apps, including where they are stored (device memory or storage card), what's been deleted, etc. Last, RIM has built support for QR barcodes into App World. This will allow developers to put QR barcodes on advertisements or other areas where users can scan the code, which will link their device directly to the application in question. In conjunction with the new version of App World, RIM is also introducing BlackBerry ID. BlackBerry ID will let users create one, master BlackBerry account that can be transferred from device to device, and carrier to carrier. The idea is to help users manage their accounts more easily and transfer between devices and carriers if need be. RIM didn't immediately disclose when App World 2.0 or BlackBerry ID would become available.

Making it easier to cram your lack of memory...

Seriously BlackBerry???

One of the biggest problems Blackberry's have is it's inability to handle a lot of downloaded software and new applications.

I've never heard someone say: "I want a BlackBerry for all those sweet Apps" But on more than one occasion I've heard people say "I want to run this thing over with my car because it keeps freezing it's Apps"

Don't give up BlackBerry! You have really solid phones that look super cool, fix your OS and THEN release this kind of stuff!!!!
I am not sure the Blackberry OS is to blame for everything though. One thing that is though is it's ability to keep too many apps open at once. Many people I run into don't close them properly and they wonder why they have issues! On more than one occ...
The BlackBerry Bold smartphone embodies elegant design without sacrificing the features or functionality you expect from a premium smartphone.
