The big question with the launch of BlackBerry 10 has been whether or not the apps would be there. While iOS and Android have been padding their app numbers over the last few years, this is one area where RIM has always been behind the field. However what it really comes down to is the important apps, we could care less for thousands of apps that do not provide a better basic experience. RIM’s VP of Global Alliances and Business Development, Martyn Mallick believes that BlackBerry 10 has the apps it needs for a successful launch.
Along the same line Mallick is realistic with his projections on the app for BlackBerry 10, “At the end of the day, you’re not going to have every app.”. Now that isn’t to say that BlackBerry 10 will be missing features, in fact Alec Saunders, VP of Developer Relations, gave the other half to that concession, saying that “Even if a particular app isn’t there that the user would want, there will be other credible substitutes.”
So do you believe that BlackBerry 10 will have the apps it requires at launch? We believe that we will see the apps that a BlackBerry user will need at launch, as well as growing field of new apps from more independent developers. What do you, our readers, think? Will BlackBerry 10 have the apps that you require at launch? And if yes, what are those apps? Let us know in the comments.
