Will BlackBerry 10 suffer for lack of apps?
dniblock 44 weeks ago
I was listening to NPR on the way in to the office today and they were talking about the launch of BlackBerry 10. Whoever it was being interviewed pointed out that there would be far fewer apps available for the BB10 than either Android or Apple devices enjoy, and they thought that would be a problem for RIM. I don't know - I mean, yeah, sure more apps is generally a good thing, but there must be literally hundreds of thousands of apps out there that I've never seen, even though I check Google Play daily. Plus many apps are worthless. Is the number of apps really a significant factor in whether BB10 sails or fails?
