Applications for BB Storm 9520

If i am not wrong, both the BB storm 9520 and 9550 are similar phones right? Just that the 9520 runs on gsm and the 9550 runs on cdma. However, i was sad to see that there are much more applications that runs on the 9550 model and not the 9520 model! Can anyone advice or tell me why?( Example, one such app is the hungrygowhere app) Is it possible for BlackBerry to allow the applications that are running on the 9550 models to also run on the 9520 too?

Re: Applications for BB Storm 9520

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!

 

Every BB model number is unique. The OS's may well be similar, but they are not identical. Hence, it is up to the app developers to port their applications to all of the BB models that they choose to support.

 

Hope that helps!

Re: Applications for BB Storm 9520

Hi and thanks for your reply. Im currently a new BB user in Singapore. We run on a GSM backbone here and its quite sad that the particular apps that are useful in SG mostly runs on the BlackBerry 9550 and 9700 phones rather than the 9520 phones that are sold here. Is there anything blackberry can do to offer the apps that run on the 9550 phones to also run on the 9520 phones?

I have also checked, the apps running on the 9520 phones are almost half of those running on the 9550 platform. I have chosen the 9520 over the 9700 due to the preference of touch screen and also thinking that it would be more of a smart phone as compared to the 9700. However, its sad to know its quite the opposite looking at the apps available.

OK...well...I refer you back to my earlier reply...it is up to the app developer, not RIM, to port their app to other BB models.
