We just got word this morning that Sports Illustrated has released a BlackBerry application now available over on BlackBerry App World.

The Sports Illustrated BlackBerry App was developed by Polar Mobile who is also behind the Businessweek, Time, and Food Network BlackBerry Apps.

The list of features in the Sports Illustrated BlackBerry App is pretty long so we’ve posted them after the jump.
