To all BB Users in the Philippines:
Research in Motion is offering a selection of free premium apps worth more than $100USD to customers around the world as an expression of appreciation, following the recent service disruptions that affected customers in Europe, North America, the Middle East, India, Latin America and Africa.

The apps will be made available to customers over the coming weeks on BlackBerry App World and will continue to be available only until December 31, 2011 -- so make sure you download them ASAP.
