Don't worry - Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja are coming to BlackBerry 10 Featured

Developers have committed to porting a variety of well-known consumer apps and games to BlackBerry 10.

We previously noted the degree of support for BlackBerry 10 claimed by BlackBerry http://www.itwire.com/your-it-news/mobility/58484-devs-gear-up-for-blackberry-10-imminent-launch (nee RIM), and now the company is pushing its consumer credentials.

Among the games coming to the new platform are Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, The Sims, Monopoly Millionaire, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Dark Knight Rises, Sonic4 Episode 1, and Cut the Rope.

A bunch of other lifestyle and multimedia apps are on their way, though very few of those mentioned by BlackBerry have much relevance to this part of the world apart from the Rdio http://www.itwire.com/your-it-news/entertainment/58479-rdio-offers-up-to-six-months-free-music-streaming-trial app.

The usual suspects can be found in BlackBerry's 'social' category, including Facebook, Foursquare, LinkedIn, Twitter, Viber, and Skype.

Local apps announced for BlackBerry 10 include Event Cinemas, goCatch, Fox Sports, Quickflix and Fairfax.
