RIM's CEO added further that the company have plans to offer the popular applications in the market as well as those most relevant to BlackBerry fans, who were stamped as hyper-connected multi-taskers and one who need to get work done.

RIM's ultra-secure BlackBerry, once the smartphone of choice, is now facing stiff competition from other rivals, especially in North American markets.
