Default The "Free Premium Apps" lie!

Please Login to Remove!

Free Premium Apps? Trash is more like it and the lack of posts means Rim/Blackberry is hiding!

$100 worth of cheap apps (Premium not close)

Until the end of December? When will the "Free Premium Apps" be available?

Service is down the drain, os 6 is garbage and they want fost more garbage on us to take our money.

Let the world know what you think!

They did release some apps such as DriveSafe.ly and Vlingo.

Android just did 10 days of 10 apps for 10 cents, which I think was a better deal, IMHO.

Agreed the Android is much better!

I've have everyone go to that or iPhone products.

My point was that Rim hasn't fullfilled the agreement they made regarding the $100 woth of Productivity Apps of which haven't appeared by any streatch of the imagination (games and limited use apps don't qualify)!

So your rant boils down to you don't like the selection of apps that RIM has given away for free and that somehow translates into RIM has failed? Is that it?

Brilliant.

Troll.

Call 'em what it is.

You wouldn't call one of the apps "premium" if it baked you chocolate cake and fed itself to you.

Troll.

You hate BlackBerry phones AND you're mad that the free apps aren't good enough?

Cognitive dissonance much?

Shouldn't this useless troll rant be moved to the Rants & Raves boneyard, where it belongs??
