RIM launches MySpace BlackBerry app


RIM and social networking website MySpace have created a unique integrated application to be used on BlackBerry handsets.

The application, which can be downloaded for free from the BlackBerry website, gives users the ability to customise their MySpace account,  send and receive messages, add friends and upload photos taken directly from their device.

It is the second major social networking site to be added by RIM after its Facebook application, which launched last year and has been downloaded by more than one million BlackBerry users.

MySpace international managing director Travis Katz said:  “This new application, specifically designed for BlackBerry, takes the MySpace mobile experience to a whole new level.

“Now MySpace’s 120 million active users will have easier access to their friends, photos and content anywhere they are, at any time, providing another great step in the growth of MySpace Mobile.”
