This is probably going to become official very, very, very, very, very, very, very soon, but it looks like App World 2.0 is on the way bringing some cool new features including the long-awaited carrier billing. This means that users will be able to purchase applications within BlackBerry App World without having to use Paypal, and can instead have the applications billed with their phone service through their respective carrier. The new version also includes BlackBerry ID (BBID sounds wicked) which lets you take your account with you when you change devices, so no more worrying about not getting into your App World account when you swap devices or carriers. The My World section as also been updated with some more features as well. We're not sure exactly when the new version will be available, so stay tuned for more.
