As expected, RIM has officially launched the BlackBerry App World. How do you get started? Simply head on over to mobile.blackberry.com from your BlackBerry or hit up blackberry.com/appworld from your desktop computer to download the App World client.
Official description of BlackBerry App World from RIM:

I can hear the BlackBerry users rejoicing all around the world, lets just hope the new App World functions as intended… and that the hiccups are minimal (or non-existant). The pricing structure for apps still stands, as you can find a whackload of free apps… But the minimum price for paid apps remains at $2.99.
VERY exciting stuff for BlackBerry users today. Stay tuned for more in-depth coverage of the brand new BlackBerry App World from Simon and Will over at CTIA. If you’ve already tried out the new App World… What did you think? Thumbs up or thumbs down?
