It looks like BlackBerry are feeling rather generous over in the Asia Pacific region as they are giving away free BlackBerry 10 apps and games throughout February, including a special selection for valentines day. 

For the rest of the world it seems like it is business as usual, but it's not uncommon for BlackBerry to run these style of offers on a regional basis. 

As you'll see from the press release below there should be something for everyone, including one of my personal favorites - Instavenue

Press Release

Asia Pacific - BlackBerry, a world leader in mobile communications, has a line-up of exciting offers for the month of February. From a free bundle of popular games to a series of daily app giveaways, BlackBerry 10 users are sure to have something to look forward to in this month of love and friendship.

In celebration of this romantic month, BlackBerry will be holding its Valentine's Day Free Giveaway promotion from the 8th to the 14th of February. During this period, BlackBerry 10 users across the region will enjoy downloading an app a day for free. Send your partner a romantic message on BBM with the Mega Emoji - Premium Messages Gadget app, get fit with a friend through Better Body Yoga, or record your sweet musings using Call Recorder 10 to make moments last a lifetime.

do i need to be in one of those countries or is it enough to insert a local sim and connect through wifi?

use a public VPN service that works with your router, select an Asia-Pacific tunnel to VPN through and then connect your phone to Wi-Fi and turn off the GSM/CDMA radio.

Exactly, that why they not getting anything anymore. ;-)

It's the Jakarta Effect, they wanna create some buzz in the region before the release.

Anyone noticed quite a few apps (emoji, etc) have got something to do with BBRY's core strength, which is messaging?

I am in Singapore for two weeks but have a Verizon Z30 so can't use a gsm SIM. I am only using wi-fi for data. Went to see if I could get the 1st free app Better Body Yoga but it's still $5.

Actually I turned off the radio as per suggestion above and get to see the free apps but now get a new purchase agreement to agree with and when I do that it still wants to take 6 euro which is weird as the free app original price was in Singapore $

I live in Sri Lanka, and for the Best of EA games for free, only Bejeweled 2, Dead Space, NBA Jam, and Plants vs. Zombies are free.

No EA or Valentines special in my country...

Definitely feeling the love (._.)

Interesting, I am currently in Pakistan, which is no where to be in Asia Pacific, yet I see the free daily apps as advertised.

And kudos to the dude who suggested using a regional sim over wifi. Brilliant idea bud.
