That BBM Music service everyone seems to be talking about supposedly has a release date around the time of BlackBerry App World 3.0’s release. Could we see that and a few other new services launch simultaneously? Nonetheless, it is good to see RIM moving fast from beta to final product. It will be equally intriguing to see if the official App World 3.0 is higher than the recent 18.104.22.168 update in Beta Zone.
