Kurt sent me an email letting me know that Slacker has released their previously announced streaming radio client for the BlackBerry. I had a chance to try it out for a few minutes and IT WAS AWESOME! The stream started practically instantaneously on 3G. The install is pretty hefty at about 1.1 megabytes but is definitely worth it.
The best part is that this Slacker app lets you cache stations to your SD card for listening later!!! This will be great for my morning commute with spotty reception. The only requirement seems to be OS 4.3 or better so make sure you have that!
From the description:
