    With BB10 App world will be changing into more of a marketplace. You will be able to buy:
    - Apps
    - Games
    - Themes
    - Ringtones
    - Music
    - Movies
    - TV Shows
    * You will also be able to do rentals.

    This will be a lot more then a simple App store. As a result does BlackBerry need to rename "App World"? Maybe to the "BlackBerry Store" or "BlackBerry Marketplace" ect. I'm not saying what they should change it's name to, just that they should change it.

    What do you guys think?
    Please leave any thoughts or name suggesions in the comments below.

    BTW.
    Now RIM just needs to add e-books to their App Store to fill out their ecosystem

    If you would like to see RIM do down with the fishes and get sued by Apple just because of the name change to "App Store", then I suppose not. But basically, yes. I had like to see a new name change since everything's gonna be new. Something like "App Home" would be nice, too. Seriously, "App World" kinda sounds like a video game to me.

    Blackberry Bazzar!

    It fits with the whole bb10 theme ala BB hub, BB flow etc, and as a bonus, there's alliteration!

    And themes dont forget themes

    App World is an apt name for their store. I'm sure others would have loved to have copyrights to 'App World' alas.

    Bazaar makes it sound like you can find cheap stuff there. If you had to change it maybe AppWorldPlus.

    I've always liked App World. I think they should keep it. I think the problem was, in the past, not having enough Apps that people wanted. Hopefully that will change with BB10. I am thinking that it will. Everything I've seen looks impressive. I think they just need better marketing(obviously) and more Apps that people want. They also really need to work on their overall image with consumers.

    I am persoanlly looking forward to BB10.

    My $0.02.

    I didn't suggest "App Store" I said "BlackBerry Store"
    I'm saying they need to remove the word "App" as the store is so much more then that (or atleast will be once BB10 hits)

    And themes dont forget themes

    Oh yea I missed Themes & Ringtones, thx for pointing them out

    My first thought was BlackBerry Marketplace, but the abbreviation would be "BBM" so that probably won't happen.

    Perhaps they should call it the BlackBerry App Patch???

    On second thought, I suppose "BlackBerry App World" works just fine for me. After all, it's what's in the store that is most important of all.

    When you say the whole thing like that, it doesn't have a good ring to it but when you just say "App World", it has a good ring to it.

    Rename it to BlackBerry Lack World before launch of BB10 and then change it back to BlackBerry App World once they get some decent apps

    edit: bb fanboys don't pounce... it's only a joke.

    BBS sounds good but too much resemblance in the 'long' name
