Amazon Appstore to be available on BlackBerry 10 phones

|By:, SA News Editor

Amazon (AMZN) Appstore will be available with the launch of the BlackBerry (BBRY) 10.3 operating system this fall.

BlackBerry has about 130K apps, but is missing key ones like Pinterest, Netflix, and Groupon, all of which Amazon - with roughly 240K apps - has access to.

"I do not have to spend time, energy and money" developing apps Amazon offers, says CEO John Chen. "Given I want to financially turn around the company and focus on the enterprise space, this is perfect for us."
