Though we have known for a while now that Slacker would be coming to BlackBerry smartphones, it was only earlier last month at CES 2009 when the official launch was made (read Press Release). Speaking of CES, while down on location in Vegas we we also recorded an awesome video overview of Slacker Mobile Application for BlackBerry smartphones by the company's Director of Marketing Communications (video after the jump).
Slacker Radio Plus: While Slacker Personal Radio on its own is awesome and free, upgrading to the Radio Plus Service provides a few big benefits, including unlimited skips, unlimited song requests and no audio or banner ads. The cost to upgrade is $3.99 per month (billed annually at $47.88).
Contest Time: Sweet! Slacker is offering us up 25 1-month subscriptions to Radio Plus to members of CrackBerry.com, so you can really take Radio Plus for an extended test drive. For your chance to win, you only need to do two things:
- have a valid email address tied to an account setup at Slacker (ie. try the service!)
- login to CrackBerry.com and make a comment to this blog post!
Contest entry closes Thursday night at midnight EST. The bad news is that Slacker is only in the USA, so that limits the the contest a bit (sorry readers from Canada and around the world!). Good luck to those who enter! Be sure to visit Slacker.com for more info and to register your account if you haven't done so already.
