BlackBerry maker RIM has announced it’s giving away a stack of apps and games to its users over the next few months, as a combined apology and peace offering to those who suffered during last week’s “BlackBerry Jam” network failures.

The company is making a decent number of apps and games free on its BlackBerry App World online store, which includes the likes of The Sims 3, Bejeweled, iSpeech Translator Pro, Photo Editor Ultimate and many more. The freebies will remain free until December 31, with RIM claiming “over $US100” worth of apps will eventually be made available.

If you’re more of a corporate/business user with an enterprise account, there’s something in it for you, too — RIM is giving all business users one month of free technical support. Something RIM itself could’ve used last week. [BlackBerry via Gizmodo UK]
