Top Brands Bringing New Apps To Blackberry, But Is It Enough?



Blackberry announced some top brands jumping in on the Blackberry 10 app market. Blackberry is pretty excited about this development but is it enough to pull the struggling mobile giant from the quicksand? Martyn Mallick, Vice President of BlackBerry World and Global Alliances at BlackBerry had the following to say about the development.

“BlackBerry has a strong lineup of top brands building great applications for BlackBerry 10”. “We remain focused on bringing relevant, sought-after apps to the BlackBerry World storefront, and we are excited to announce and welcome these new partners to BlackBerry 10.”

Mr. Mallick is certainly optimistic which is a good attitude and posture to take. The Z30 handset is without question some sleek and wonderful hardware. But is this too little to late?
