BlackBerry App Store Open For Submissions
Research In Motion has begun soliciting applications for the BlackBerry Application Storefront, which is due to go live in March.
Submissions for applications opened on Monday. RIM announced in October that it would be launching an app store in March of this year, a move that will bring it in line with rivals such as Apple, Google, and Palm, each of whom has or is about to launch their own on-device app stores.
The vendor guidelines listed on RIM's Web site make it explicit that the Canadian handset manufacturer "reserves the right to accept, deny, or remove any application from the Storefront, at any time." However, it is not yet clear precisely how much control RIM intends to exercise over which applications are chosen for listing--the closest points of comparison being the iPhone App Store, over which Apple retains control, and the Android Market, where Google has a notably low barrier to entry.
RIM is working with PayPal on the payment mechanism for the Storefront. Organizations will also be able to roll out applications to BlackBerry-toting workers. Those using BlackBerry Enterprise Server or BlackBerry Professional Software will be able to control which applications their workers are able to download.
I'm ready to see it in my phone already. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
i can't wait for an app store, i just wonder if they are going to post a lot of free applications
Never give up...you can always make a difference
Yes an App store would be wicked, but i also agree, hope there is some stuff for free, as well, we know there is gonna be a lot of stuff to purchase.
I can not wait to see what's offered. I feel like a kid at christmas ...

It will be nice as long as they don't charge for everything like the i-store does!
Quite interested as well.
Totally agree. I hope that RIM does not follow what the others are doing and charging users for it.

here is a question: i have a bold. I have only 26mb of room left for applications. Of course on the other hand I have 858.7mb free of 859.2mb device memory. When the app store releases will we still have no actual room for APPS or will there be an update to incorporate the media card or with the bold the device memory.
