The world’s first Personal Radio company offering ‘Your Radio Everywhere,’ Slacker has announced that its free Slacker Mobile Radio application is now compatible with BlackBerry Device Software version 4.3 and higher, allowing the BlackBerry smartphone users in the U.S. to enjoy their favorite Slacker radio stations wherever they go.


“Slacker Mobile makes your BlackBerry smartphone the ultimate personal radio player,” said Dennis Mudd, CEO of Slacker. “And because of our caching technology, BlackBerry owners can play their personal radio stations everywhere, even on subways and planes, with much better battery life and faster song skipping than is possible with streaming stations.”

According to the release, “Slacker station caching, an exclusive feature for BlackBerry smartphones, enables mobile listeners to store favorite stations on a memory card, allowing Slacker music service to play without a network connection while boosting battery life up to 5 times that of streaming playback and enhancing application performance. In addition, BlackBerry smartphone enthusiasts can enjoy Slacker Personal Radio while doing other tasks such as emailing, instant messaging or web browsing.”

“Our new BlackBerry smartphones provide truly impressive audio and video performance that allows the smartphones to serve as powerful and conveniently accessible personal entertainment devices for consumers and business users alike,” said Jeff McDowell, Vice President, Global Alliances at Research In Motion. “With access to millions of songs and easily customized programming, it’s no surprise that people are excited by this new application.”

The Slacker Personal Radio Mobile application for BlackBerry smartphones is now available as a free download by visiting Slacker’s official site from your beloved BlackBerry device.
