BlackBerry to Offer Amazon Appstore Available on BlackBerry 10 Smartphones
BlackBerry has agreed a licensing deal with Amazon.com that will let the Canadian smartphone maker offer more than 200,000 Android applications from Amazon's app store on its line-up of BlackBerry 10 devices this fall.
Popular apps such as Groupon, Netflix, Pinterest, Candy Crush
Saga and Minecraft will all be all available for direct
download, Blackberry said.
Blackberry will continue to offer BlackBerry World, where
users will be able to access applications that leverage the
features of the BlackBerry 10 operating system.
In addition to the greater selection of apps, Blackberry will
offer access video and music services through a number of
third party services available through the Amazon Appstore and
BlackBerry World. While BlackBerry World will continue to
offer music and video services via third party applications,
Blackberry will close the music and video sections of its
store on July 21st. Previously downloaded content will be
available after that date through MyWorld.
