Remember the 3-day outage that BlackBerry users suffered just last week? Research In Motion (RIM) wants to kiss and make up by offering free premium apps to those who were affected by the services interruptions. The whole range of premium apps will be worth a total of over $100, and this olive branch is a sign of RIM’s appreciation for their customers’ patience.
These apps will make their way to affected customers in the coming weeks via BlackBerry App World, and will be there until the end of the year. RIM Co-CEO Mike Lazaridis had this to say, “Our global network supports the communications needs of more than 70 million customers. We truly appreciate and value our relationship with our customers. We’ve worked hard to earn their trust over the past 12 years, and we’re committed to providing the high standard of reliability they expect, today and in the future.”
The whole works of premium apps can be downloaded from October 19th onwards, where among them include Sims 3, Bejeweled, N.O.V.A., Texas Hold’em Poker 2, Bubble Bash 2, Photo Editor Ultimate, DriveSafe.ly Pro, iSpeech Translator Pro, Drive Safe.ly Enterprise, Nobex Radio Premium, Shazam Encore and Vlingo Plus amongst others. I would say the games would be the fastest moving out of the lot – what about you?
