While Research in Motion as analysts and journalists speculate that the company may be going out of business, today’s news from the company is actually quite positive.

Blackberry App World –RIM’s answer to the App Store or Google Play– has hit 3 billion downloads. The Blackberry Developer’s blog has more:

Three billion app downloads averages out to over 2.5 million downloads each day.  What’s even more important – and impressive – is that the number of daily downloads continues to increase. It took 786 days to reach the one billion mark, 210 days to reach two billion, and only 176 days to reach the three billion number. I should also note that this number does not include apps downloaded from third party BlackBerry app stores, or those pushed internally at companies around the world, or those downloaded directly from the web.
