I hope this means that the quality of 3rd party BlackBerry software will start to improve as more developers are drawn to the platform. I've been more than a little disappointed, not just with the relative lack of apps, but also with the poor quality of a lot of the stuff that is available.

That's because they charge more for BlackBerry applications than they do for Palm applications...
