BlackBerry Beta Zone users in the US will get the opportunity to test out an upcoming radio discovery app, BlackBerry Radio, and provide feedback to help us perfect it. This app will put multiple mobile radio services at your fingertips with no set-up and no cost for the beta user beyond their standard data plan costs.
BlackBerry Radio isn't a traditional radio app, but instead works with multiple radio apps to make the process of finding and listening to radio on a BlackBerry smartphone quicker, easier and more integrated by presenting a sampling of services from some of our most popular partners.
BlackBerry Radio lets users listen to a variety of stations and genres from any of the partner services, and download those services' premium apps from within BlackBerry radio.
BlackBerry Radio is integrated into the existing BlackBerry Media player, which means it's part of the music menu on your BlackBerry. It also means you can quickly jump to Amazon's Mp3 store to buy the song you're listening to. The coolest part of BlackBerry radio, though, is that you'll be able to try its partner services out for free -- without subscribing to each individual service.
