RIM has just announced on their developer blog the rebranding of their App Store from Blackberry App World to Blackberry World!

With the imminent release of Blackberry 10 only days away now, the rebranding of their app store has come at the right time.

Blackberry 10 users as well as Playbook users will now be able to purchase much more from the Blackberry store than just be limited to apps.

Movies, Videos, Albums and TV Series will be available for users to either download or rent/stream for 24hours giving RIM a great new way for their users to access content than ever before.

A much better integration of the app store with users of BBM (Blackberry Messenger) as well as social media sites Facebook and Twitter makes for sharing and showing off apps and media. Users can now use NFC to tap and share apps, and will continue to be able to download apps and content from their device on laptop or computer.

From what we can see it looks like RIM may be giving way (on the front menu screen) to the old Top Downloaded Apps, Top Rated and Top Paid apps and may be looking to just incorporate them all into one large bunch of apps table under the folder of 'Top Trending Apps & Games' and move the other sections elsewhere.

This would give users one point of download where the imputus would be given to the best apps being downloaded by Blackberry users, with the best user ratings giving the user the best download experience which they werent able to achieve previously

In the last few days in the Blackberry portathons, developers have submitted over 15,000 apps for the Blackberry 10 OS, giving RIM a total of approximately 60,000 apps ready to be unleashed to the buyers of the new Blackberry 10 devices.

Will you be one of them?

Following the submission of a multitude of Apps onto Blackberry World it became known that we needed to get a list up together showing Blackberry OS 7 devices and their screen resolution sizes, and the same for OS 6 Blackberry devices the screen resolutions and the os version.

We felt that during the submission process it was difficult to know which device supports what OS and at what size screen resolution.

In the end and after plenty of to and fro-ing with different websites like the blackberry site, phonearena, gsmarena, wikipedia etc we have put a list together below which is by no means a list of them all, but at least during the Blackberry app submission process it will help to serve as a nice reference tool to make it all nice and easy!

With the exception of Blackberry 10 devices this list may be missing a few 'emerging markets' OS 7+ devices due to be released perhaps in the middle of 2013, if you feel there are devices missing or inaccurate, please leave a comment and we will update this Blackberry screen resolution Blackberry device model and OS version list
Blackberry Dev Alpha Software update Screenshot
Blackberry Dev Alpha
The Blackberry 10 Dev Alpha device operating system was updated to version earlier this morning. We were lucky enough to download the latest version via OTA direct from the device.

A relatively simple process, download took approximately 25-30 mins where the installation file was 487MB in size.

Installation did not take more than 10 minutes so the upgrade process was flawless and within very reasonable timescales. It also restored the existing data as it should. Have a look at the screenshots below of the upgrade steps..

Just a few small cosmetic updates we found straight up from the homescreen that we noticed as the Blackberry Dev Alpha booted to the mail menu screen..

All icons are now slighted rounded on the edges and look much sharper

Icons changed (Browser/Calender/BBM)

Blackberry App World now renamed to Blackberry World

Settings icon now appears as a seperate icon, previously it was on a menu that had to be swiped downwards from the top

Blackberry Messenger

Blackberry Messenger 10
Unfortunately Blackberry Messenger would not open for now..
During the photo screenshots the Blackberry Messenger 10 would not want to load up during this time and get spinning with the Opening BBM sign, we will try a reboot later on and see what happens..

Active Screens

The Blackberry OS10 Active Screens feature looked faster and more fluid. Only dissapointing thing is that it would not display active screens. For example, it would be interesting the see the youtube video running in its own window, while the BBM screen was actively showing at the same time, now that would be a cool thing to have!

Blackberry App World 10 App Storefront
Blackberry Appworld now renamed to Blackberry World. We believe this is due to the fact that Apps, Music, Video and Films are also for sale in this 'device store'. Making it not just for apps but for everything else too..

The Blackberry 10 World now has updated apps released by developers up until september. All other apps are now doe to be released in January after the final release.
