According to a report by Bloomberg, Jeff McDowell vice president of Research In Motion in a recent interview confirmed that the BlackBerry App World will be live in Spain, Italy, Germany and France this month, while India and Brazil are next on the list.
McDowell then released the amount of applications at 2000 which is up from the original 1000 at launch, and said when comparing those numbers with that of the iPhone App Store? ?I don?t think it matters whether it?s 40,000 or 2,000, you?ve still got a broad range of choice.?
It does get to a point with the end user where the amount of available apps makes no difference, but it does indeed act as a gauge of developer interest.
