Since the MySpace for BlackBerry Smartphones application’s launch on November 13, 2008 there have been more than 400,000 downloads which represents an all-time high for both MySpace and RIM in terms of first week application downloads.
Through the MySpace for BlackBerry smartphones application, users collectively sent and received more than 15 million messages and updated their mood and status over two million times in the first week.
The MySpace for BlackBerry smartphones application is fully optimized to deliver rich content and data to users on the go. MySpace for BlackBerry smartphones integrates MySpace’s primary social networking components with the BlackBerry platform to provide instant, push-based messaging to users.
“This powerful new mobile application combines social networking and mobility in a highly personalized and empowering manner and we are very excited to see such a positive response in the first week.” said Jim Balsillie, Co-Chief Executive Officer at Research In Motion.
It is available for download at www.blackberry.com/myspace or m.myspace.com from your BlackBerry Browser.
