BlackBerry users at 1.5million downloads a day

It's DevCon one!!

Research In Motion (RIM) has said that BlackBerry App World users are downloading more than 1.5 million apps per day on average.

The total of 1.5 million downloads also represents a 40 percent increase for RIM over the previous, which is not bad considering that earlier this month they announced they had hit the 10,000 apps milestone.

RIM has also announced that the latest version of the BlackBerry platform, BlackBerry 6, will include improved HTML5 and widget support. It said that it is working with developers to enable them to exploit new features supported by the platform, including universal search, barcode scanning, network-based location capabilities, “and more.” RIM also said it is starting to bring new developers to the platform, who are building apps on top of the WebKit browser using the BlackBerry widget platform.

RIM also said it would have some “very exciting” news coming at the BlackBerry DevCon at end of September in San Francisco.
