In case you couldn’t decode the earlier post, Blackberry officially launched their App World service overnight. But if you were hoping to get your fingers on some hot Blackberry apps through a single, simple application, you’re going to be sorely disappointed when you go to download it. Turns out that you need to be on contract in the US, UK or Canada to get your hands on it.It is, however, highly unlikely that we’ll be neglected forever. Considering that RIM are actually sharing some of the revenue from app sales with networks, I imagine the likes of Telstra, Voda, Optus and 3 will be pushing RIM locally for a new revenue stream.

In the meantime, you can still download apps from anywhere around the internet as per usual.
