Pandora, arguably the most popular internet radio application for the BlackBerry (personally like Slacker a little better), has been updated to v1.1.7. Unfortunately, there is no change log. If you notice any differences let us know via the comments.
Research in Motion has been working on a radio discovery app for the BlackBerry, and, later today, they will unveil it to select BlackBerry Beta Zone users in the United States. The new application is called BlackBerry Radio and the beta version will put multiple mobile radio services at your fingertips with no set-up and no cost for the beta user beyond their standard data plan costs.
BlackBerry Radio is not a traditional radio app, but instead works with multiple radio apps to make the process of finding and listening to radio on a BlackBerry® smartphone quicker, easier and more integrated by presenting a sampling of services from some of our most popular partners.
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
- Just start rockin’! No set-up required
- Try premium radio apps within BlackBerry Radio for free

Myxer, the somewhat popular MP3 music service has just launched Myxer MP3 for BlackBerry and touts a catalog of over 2 million tracks. If you are a Myxer user, Mxyer MP3 for BlackBerry is probably an application that you may want to check out. If you aren’t a Myxer user you should probably check out, Slacker Radio, Pandora, or even iHeartRadio, as they seem to offer a better experience in my opinion…
