If you were one of the select BlackBerry Beta Zone members chosen to test out BlackBerry Radio, then you'll be happy to hear it's been updated to v1.0.0.41. If you haven't heard of BlackBerry Radio, it is a radio station discovery application that integrates and streams some of your favorite digital radio stations (Corus, Slacker) all in one place for easy access. It even gives you the ability to download the full version of these partner apps directly from App World.

This version fixes quite a few bugs and replaces Clear Channel's iheartradio stations with ones provided by Nobex Radio Companion. As always, a new keycode is required to activate after installation and is e-mailed to you after downloading. When logging into Beta Zone, simply verify your information and you should receive the e-mail right away.

Some of the additional features include:

  • New Nobex radio streams are available, however it may take up 24 hours for you to see these stations in Blackberry Radio. If you do not see the streams, periodically refresh your streams by pressing the BB Menu key and selecting "Refresh"
  • Collapsible lists for genres
  • Various smaller bug fixes

To download the BlackBerry Radio update, visit the BlackBerry Beta Zone website



Blackberry radio is pretty neat i like the idea of having all my radio apps merged into one for ease of use


Which one is better, Pandora for BB or Blackberry Radio?


They still all pale in comparison to TuneIn Radio. That's the best radio made for Blackberries in my opinion.


Well, to that question......can you input specific streams to this app, a la TuneIn?

Also, with the Slacker stuff, can it only show/list/play specific stations or can it play your own custom stations?


Agreed! Tune In is killer! I've tried them all and Tune In still rocks!


signed up on the site day before yesterday,let me go check my email...nice app
