RIM Adds ShopBlackBerry Store Application To BlackBerry App World
on 17 Feb 2010 10:10 pm EST
A rather interesting addition was just made to the BlackBerry App World test center category. ShopBlackBerry, the website that RIM uses to sell accessories for BlackBerry smartphones now has a mobile application. You can download, install and shop for items directly using your device. Part of the description goes:
"With great features like automatic device detection and catalogue updates you can shop for a wide and expanding range of accessories compatible with your BlackBerry smartphone. Address book integration and secure credit card purchasing makes ShopBlackBerry Mobile one of the most convenient and safest ways to shop for BlackBerry® accessories."
Pretty cool, although the credit card purchases thing seems a little off to me since BlackBerry App World uses PayPal. At this time Visa and Mastercard are accepted at checkout but I hope to see PayPal integration later, given this is a "Test Center" app. Most users should now see it appearing in app world if you wish to download it and check it out, if not you can always check out the Shop CrackBerry Store instead.
