We told you that eBay would be putting out a new push application in November but the app is scheduled to drop today. RIM & eBay let us know that their beta application launches today for all North American users. eBay for BlackBerry smartphones will be available for download through App World and will even get its own reviews and feedback section in the official BlackBerry support forums.
The app will let users search, buy, pay and check their eBay activity from the app. It also uses the RIM push API to notify you of the status of eBay listings in real-time like winning an auction, being outbid, or a listing on their Watch List is ending soon.
- Add to Calendar – Users can add the end time and reminders for auctions to their calendar
- Payments – Users with a PayPal account can purchase directly through the application
- Search by Location – Buyers can specify their search for items up to 1,200 miles from their home location
