Starting today (Wednesday, October 19, 2011), Research in Motion (RIM), the maker of the BlackBerry will be giving away $100 worth of premium apps for free to their subscribers! This is in response to the major outages that they had last week. This is BlackBerry’s way to express their appreciation for your patience during the recent service disruptions. RIM’s enterprise customers will also be offered one month of free Technical Support.
