To push its upcoming mobile OS, Research In Motion is starting off a fresh global pricing plan in its BlackBerry World store.
As described in the RIM blog post yesterday, the new pricing tiers found in the shop will incorporate foreign exchange rates and value-added tax requirements. The concept is to make sure that app prices stay consistent and competitive across the globe.
The brand new pricing tiers will first get to the U.K. and Europe, affecting the British pound and euro. RIM promises it will roll out updates to other currencies around the globe shortly after the original round.
BlackBerry app developers do not need to take any action, because the updates will probably be applied automatically. Nevertheless they will be able to adjust the pricing tier for their apps in a country.
