BlackBerry announces new licensing deal with Amazon for Android Appstore.

Hammeh (2481572) writes "Blackberry today announced on their blog they have reached a licensing agreement with Amazon to provide the Amazon Android Appstore to be shipped with BlackBerry OS 10.3 due to be released this fall. The Amazon Appstore will exist alongside the current BlackBerry World, bringing more than 200,000 android apps directly to BB 10.3 devices. As part of the announcement, BlackBerry also outlined they will be closing the Music and Video sections of BlackBerry world as they will be provided by the Amazon Appstore.

The question is, is it enough to save BlackBerry in the consumer market or is it too little too late?"
