Adam Nash, Vice President, Search & Platform Products at LinkedIn, announced yesterday at the BlackBerry Developer’s Conference that LinkedIn for BlackBerry is coming soon.

Why it has taken the popular business social media and networking site so long to come out with a LinkedIn for BlackBerry mobile app is beyond me, however, better late than never definitely applies to what I think is going to a hugely popular BlackBerry application.

LinkedIn for BlackBerry

We’ve worked hard to develop an application that takes advantage of the unique capabilities of the BlackBerry platform.  LinkedIn for BlackBerry will also include deep integration with the native Messages, Contacts & Calendar applications on the BlackBerry platform.

An exact release date for LinkedIn for BlackBerry is still not clear but it is expected that it will be released before the end of the year.  I personally can’t wait for this one.
