BlackBerry App World 2.0 Hits BlackBerry Beta Zone! (Updated with Screenshots)
A while back, we let you know what you could expect in BlackBerry App World 2.0, though there wasn’t much solid information available as to when we could expect it. As of this morning, App World 2.0 has officially been made available in the BlackBerry Beta Zone.
Among the changes is a new Top 25 list, sorting into multiple categories including Newest, Recently Updated, and Themes, in addition to the new BlackBerry ID which makes it easy to manage purchased applications from any BlackBerry handset. It looks like carrier billing hasn’t been implemented as of yet, but it isn’t surprising considering this is the first beta release of v2.0.

Update: It seems like RIM’s servers are having a hard time keeping up with the number of people trying to sign-up, but they’re working to resolve the issue soon.
Check back shortly, screenshots after the break!
