RIM has projected 1000,000 apps, a record of course for any new platform at take off. We know it is still a small part of those available on Apple Inc or Google Inc devices.

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.
