We got a note from RIM this morning letting us know about a new app they will be debuting in the BlackBerry Beta Zone. Later today, select Beta Zone users in the US will get to try out BlackBerry Radio, which is a radio station discovery app. According to RIM, "this app is a one stop shop for downloading your favorite radio services. Whether you're in the mood for pop, rock or jazz, your radio stream is just a click away!"
Key features of BlackBerry Radio include:
- Access popular internet and terrestrial radio services like Slacker, Pandora, Clear Channel, and Corus in one place
- Quickly browse genre-based radio stations
- Enjoy seamless integration with your BlackBerry smartphone for quick and easy access to BlackBerry radio partners and the Amazon MP3 storefront
- Try premium radio apps within BlackBerry Radio for free
- Just start rockin'! No set-up required
We'll be grabbing a copy of BlackBerry Radio for ourselves to give it a go and will report back soon. In the meantime, Doug posted more info about BlackBerry Radio over on the Inside BB blog.
