Research in Motion might be struggling and might not be able to launch their next generation devices this year… But they are trying hard to keep a cheerful public face.
The company has revealed that their BlackBerry App World has now seen 3 billion downloads.
Three billion app downloads averages out to over 2.5 million downloads each day. What’s even more important – and impressive – is that the number of daily downloads continues to increase. It took 786 days to reach the one billion mark, 210 days to reach two billion, and only 176 days to reach the three billion number. I should also note that this number does not include apps downloaded from third party BlackBerry app stores, or those pushed internally at companies around the world, or those downloaded directly from the web.
Of course, these numbers are nowhere near the numbers of Google Play Store or Apple App Store. Things would get interesting when Blackberry 10 platform launches next year.
