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.
