No $.99 BlackBerry Apps for you (prices start at $2.99)

Research in Motion is in the process of launching an app store that will let users purchase and download software directly from their Blackberry mobile devices. You know, kind of like the iPhone App Store. But for BlackBerry.

But there’s at least one thing setting the BlackBerry App World store apart from the competition: prices will start at $2.99. The companies has released a FAQ for developers explaining the pricing tiers. And it looks like you’ll be able to find free apps in the store. But the suggested pricing for paid apps starts at $2.99 and goes up to $999.99.

Now, it’s possible that these prices aren’t written in stone. RIM does refer to them as “suggested retail prices.” But it’s also possible that this is RIM’s way of ensuring that the company’s app store isn’t filled with frivolous apps like the fart app craze that has recently overtaken Apple’s app store.
