Amazon Appstore coming to BlackBerry users this fall

BlackBerry has entered into a licensing agreement with Amazon to bring the over 200,000 Android apps available via its Appstore platform to BlackBerry 10.3 users.

Apps such as Groupon, Netflix, Pinterest, Candy Crush Saga and Minecraft — would all be available for direct download.

But fear not BlackBerry purists, BlackBerry World will continue to be available, where you can access applications that are built for BlackBerry 10.

In addition to the greater app selection, you will be able to access video and music services through a number of popular third party services available through the Amazon Appstore and BlackBerry World. While BlackBerry World will continue to offer music and video services via third party applications, the music and video sections of BlackBerry World will be closing on July 21st. Previously downloaded content will be available after that date through MyWorld.
