Submission + - RIM Trying to Woo Customers With Porn, Gambling Apps? (cio.com)

AZA43 writes: "Everybody knows that BlackBerry-maker RIM is hurting these days. But is it hurting enough to try to attract new customers with the promise of porn and/or gambling apps? A new rating system added to RIM's BlackBerry App World store suggests that it just may be that desperate. The new "Adult" rating covers, "graphic sexual content, graphic nudity," " graphic violence," and gambling apps "as permitted by law." And that suggests RIM will allow this kind of content into App World, in stark contrast to Apple's no-porn-on-the-iPhone stand."
