At Bat 2010 was released late Tues. for
Blackberry. Here's its scoreboard
MLB.comâ€™s â€śAt Bat 2010â€ť was released yesterday in Appleâ€™s iTunes App Store, just before the first Spring Training game aired, and with it, the faithful using Appleâ€™s mobile platform were, for the most part, elated.
As soon as we published the news, emails poured in asking about other platforms, as well as, how sales might be going. Hereâ€™s an update:
Blackberry Beret â€“ iPhone and iPod Touch users got At Bat 2010 first on Tuesday, but later in the day the product was released for Blackberry (download here). Â Supported devices include: 9500, 9520, 9530, 9550. Sorry, Blackberry usersâ€¦ No streaming video.
An Android Today â€“ MLB.com informs that At Bat will be released for Android users sometime today (Weds.).
You Really Like Me (iPhone) â€“ There were some rumblings yesterday about increasing the price of At Bat from $9.99 last year to $14.99 this year. That didnâ€™t seem to slow purchases down. According to MLB.com it was the:
- #1 top grossing app
- #3 top paid app
- #1 top paid sports app (less than 3 hours to achieve the ranking)
What is â€śAt the Ballparkâ€ť? â€“ This is the question on everybodyâ€™s lips, and the answer isâ€¦ well, we donâ€™t know the answer. MLB.com will only say that this new feature will provide â€ścustomized, proprietary content to fan-experience tools and moreâ€ť and that it is still in development. We can speculate, howeverâ€¦ Our guess (dream)? Ballparks that are Wi-Fi enabled will allow you to see content at the ballpark you are attending, thus enriching the game. REALLY dreaming for the futureâ€¦ Imagine being able to order food through your device or something to that effect. Weâ€™ll give you the reality of the future when MLB.com comes closer to release.
NOTE: MLB.com has not yet updated their mobile section for links to download At Bat 2010 for each platform. Here are the two available at publishing:
