RIM sets out pricing tiers for Blackberry apps

 

RIM has published the pricing for its paid applications on its new app store, BlackBerry App World, and in doing so has informed BlackBerry users they will be paying more for their applications than iPhone users..

The pricing is to give mobile app developers an idea of how much they can charge for their applications.

RIM has said the lowest price people can expect to pay for applications is US$2.99 for US BlackBerry owners, a higher fee than the iPhone’s lowest application prices, which fall below US$1.

Both RIM and Apple offer free applications as well.

In related RIM news, pictures have been leaked of the new Blackberry 9630.

The new version, as seen by Crackberry, features the same chrome trim as models such as the BlackBerry Bold but boasts a bigger screen.
