It was only a few days ago that I noted how Facebook and social networking as a whole is fueling the mobile web. And news comes today that RIM have released a native MySpace client for its Blackberry line of smartphones. A move that also reinforces the company's push to take the Blackberry brand beyond its enterprise roots to also target consumers.
Key features of the new MySpace client include the ability to:
- Send and receive MySpace mail
- Update your Status and Mood
- View and send Bulletins
- Add comments
- Post your photos
The new MySpace for Blackberry app is available at www.blackberry.com/myspace or m.myspace.com via the Blackberry’s web browser. Notably, RIM list 'social networking' as a 'device feature' alongside email, organise, browser, media playback etc., with MySpace listed together with applications for Flickr and of course Facebook.
