BlackBerry turns to Amazon for apps

BlackBerry on Wednesday announced a new licensing agreement with Amazon which sees the hardware maker employing the Appstore for its handsets. Once realized, smartphones which run the forthcoming BBOS 10.3 will be able to tap into the Amazon Appstore and its more than 200,000 applications. Yes, this means the same Android apps available to Kindle Fire, Fire TV, and Android devices already running the Appstore. Due in September, the software update will give BlackBerry smartphones access to apps outside of the World store.
