We’ve been patiently waiting for a Picasa client for BlackBerry since the beginning of the year, however, rumors are floating around that the the plug on Picasa for BlackBerry has been pulled.

I would have to say that this is an unexpected turn of events, especially seeing how RIM showed a working pre-release of the client to everyone that would listen back at WES. I was hoping that Picasa for BlackBerry would not only allow you to upload your pictures, but to view your galleries as well. This is a shortcoming of the Flickr for BlackBerry client.

There has been, to my knowledge, no official announcement that Picasa for BlackBerry is dead, however, all the official pages about Picasa for BlackBerry are gone and receiving 404 errors.
