RIM Promises 70,000 Apps for BlackBerry 10 Launch

Research In Motion is slated to unveil BlackBerry 10, both software and hardware, on January 30 in Toronto.

One of the larger concerns critics have of the next-gen mobile computing platform is a potential lack of apps. But RIM insists that a respectable number of apps will be available at launch for consumers to enjoy.

In an interview with Forbes, RIM’s chief marketing officer Frank Boulben states that “at launch we will have more than 70,000 apps available.” If true, then this is actually a great amount for the company to work with—assuming it includes a lot of the top staple apps, like native social network experiences, essential productivity apps, and popular games.
