With only 8 days to go we have a bit more BlackBerry 10 goodness coming at you. RIM recently rebranded their app store to BlackBerry World and they’ve also promised over 70,000 apps at launch. We’ve also seen them demo some popular apps – such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Foursquare – but some homegrown Canadian companies have announced their support for BB10.
In an email to us RIM declared that we can expect to see Air Canada, President’s Choice Recipe Box, Manulife’s InsureRight, Maple Leafs Sports & Entertainment (Toronto Marlies, Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors, Toronto FC), Tim Horton’s TimmyMe, and The Weather Network all make it the new BlackBerry 10 devices.
Martyn Mallick, RIM’s VP of Global Alliances & Business Development, stated that “Over the past few months, we have seen tremendous enthusiasm and anticipation from developers around the globe, and especially here on our home soil. We have worked closely with Canadian developers to bring the brands Canadians love to the mobile space so their content and services can be accessed anywhere, anytime.”
