 blackberry-radio-1 blackberry-radio-2 

The RIM blog just mentioned a new app they have just introduced called “BlackBerry Radio” which hopes to help you discover radio apps on your BlackBerry. The app is available today to “Select BlackBerry Beta Zone users in the United States” so if you are in the US check out www.blackberry.com/beta to see if you qualify. The app does not actually hope to replace the many radio apps but instead puts the many BlackBerry radio apps at your fingertips.

It works with the different radio apps to help you find and listen to radio on your BlackBerry offering you a sample from their “Popular partners.” You can listen to some of the radios channels and if you like them you can simply download the app. They have also integrated the app with the Amazon MP3 Storefront allowing you to purchase songs that you are playing using the menu.

Let us know if you get into the beta!

  1. cool.. will we see it in app world soon?

  2. Hmm so it’s not actually a Radio app? it just lists all the radio apps available? Kind of useless, but hey maybe helps some people.

  3. It is only available to the 9800, 9780, and 9670. Odd that the 9650 and 9330 aren’t in this as they are now able to have OS 6.

  4. I guess they reached their limit of beta testers. It’s not showing up in my Eligible programs. I have 9780.

  5. I don’t understand the point of this

  6. Ok I was able to get it. I will see what’s it worth.

  7. Sounds like a nice little app to compliment your Blackberry media experience, integrates with AmazonMP3, look up the app used by various radio stations you’re interested in listening too…only question is, is how “little” is it? Anyone know the download size? If its a massive download, I doubt that I download it…google works just fine.

  8. Seems interesting, but useless for me.

  9. hhhmmm with TuneIn, Pandora, Slacker and others, does RIM really need to put their efforts in to this?

    I can see their time and engineering going to other more useful things.
