Research In Motion is attempting to match the success made by the Apple iTunes App Store.  As you may know, over half a billion applications have been downloaded on the iTunes App Store already.  Now Research In Motion is accepting applicants for their application store.  Research In Motion’s store will be called the BlackBerry Storefront.  Applications have to be downloaded wirelessly to a BlackBerry smartphone and must be usable without requiring customization.

There is also a BlackBerry Fund that exists to promote companies to make applications for Research In Motion.  Supposedly the fund is about $150 million and was set up by Research In Motion, RBC, and Thomson Reuters.

More information about the application submissions can be found at: http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/application_storefront.jsp.
