RIM’s BlackBerry App World Tops Three Billion Downloads
Now, that’s nowhere near the number of downloads claimed by RIM’s rivals — the iTunes App store passed 25 billion earlier this year. And RIM tells me the number does include theme and wallpaper apps, along with productivity apps, games and the like. But it’s a decent enough metric, given the company’s late arrival to the smartphone apps party and its struggles of late.
Two-and-a-half-million downloads per day may pale in comparison to the download numbers Apple and Google are racking up, but it’s likely more than you’d expect.
