We are less than a day away from launch of BlackBerry 10, and leading to it we see plenty of wonderful applications being announced for the platform, some of which are available now.  ESPN has announced its ScoreCenter application which is already available for BlackBerry 10 devices in BlackBerry App World.  Apps like these are great to have right out of the box, or in this case right before launch.  The neat thing here is that the application is completely in HTML5, a huge pitch for developers making apps for the future platform.

“Sharing and connecting is at the heart of BlackBerry 10. The BlackBerry 10 platform will allow ESPN ScoreCenter fans to quickly share the most exhilarating moments with their social communities, close contacts and colleagues,” said Martyn Mallick, Vice President, Global Alliances and Business Development at Research In Motion. “Sports fans using the new BlackBerry 10 smartphones will be able to catch up with latest info on their favorite teams and players with the ScoreCenter app.”
