Remember the BlackBerry Beta we told you some time ago? Well the RIM guys have launched an application (beta actually) for the BlackBerry Beta users to test. This brilliant app is called BlackBerry Radio as per RIM, would be available for the US to test at the moment.
According to RIM:
This app will put multiple mobile radio services at your fingertips with no set-up and no cost for the beta user beyond their standard data plan costs.
BlackBerry Radio is not a traditional radio app, but instead works with multiple radio apps to make the process of finding and listening to radio on a BlackBerry® smartphone quicker, easier and more integrated by presenting a sampling of services from some of our most popular partners.
The BlackBerry Radio apps elegance lies in the following:
1. Simple discovery
With BlackBerry Radio, you can access popular digital radio services from one place…BlackBerry Radio features a combination of Internet radio (including Slacker) and terrestrial radio…
2. Easy access to radio apps for more stations and features
If you really enjoy the channels provided by Slacker, for example, you can easily download their premium radio app at any time from within BlackBerry Radio.
3. Seamless integration into the BlackBerry Media Experience
While listening to music streams from participating radio partners, users in the US will have quick access to the recently launched Amazon MP3 storefront to purchase songs currently playing. Users can also access BlackBerry Radio at any time from within the music menu on their BlackBerry smartphone.
4. Trying services out – for no additional cost!
With BlackBerry Radio, you will be able to sample all of the various preset stations even if you aren’t subscribed to the partner service(s).
