BlackBerry App World 3.0 due August 22

Finalized BlackBerry App World 3.0 due Monday

RIM's app store, with the latest version known as BlackBerry App World 3.0, is due to launch on August 22, after entering beta at the start of the month. The official release will see a new home screen for the storefront, with rotating banners devoted to the newest high-profile apps. Downloads will be saved in a cloud-based My World folder, letting users download the same apps again quickly without having to purchase them again when switching handsets.

Apps can be purchased using PayPal, credit cards or added to the monthly wireless bill. App barcodes can be scanned for specific BlackBerry apps and then found by the storefront later.

RIM's BBM Music service may be released around the same time, though this hasn't been officially confirmed. [via N4BB]
