    CTIA: Slacker & RIM Partner to Enable Slacker Radio on BlackBerry!

    Advertisement



    Slacker, Inc. and Research In Motion today announced plans for Slacker to provide a free Slacker Personal Radio application, exclusively for BlackBerry smartphones, that will enable listeners to hear their favorite Slacker radio stations wherever they go - even when not connected to a wireless network. The application will be previewed this week at the BlackBerry booth (booth 614) at CTIA in San Francisco and was highlighted in today's CTIA keynote address by Jim Balsillie, Co-CEO of RIM.

    Slacker Personal Radio, available online at www.Slacker.com, enables listeners to personalize over 100 professionally programmed stations or create, edit and share their own Personal Radio stations. Slacker listeners also have easy access to artist profiles, album reviews and cover art within the Slacker Web Player, on Slacker Personal Radio Players and soon on BlackBerry smartphones.

    The Slacker application will provide BlackBerry smartphone users in the U.S. with a robust, high-fidelity personalized music discovery and listening experience pulling from over 100 expertly programmed Slacker stations, over 10,000 artist stations or their own custom-created stations.

    Slacker's unique caching technology will allow listeners to access Personal Radio stations using their BlackBerry smartphones without ever having to manage playlists, research new artists or deal with complicated software again. The Slacker application for BlackBerry smartphones will work with Free Slacker Basic Radio and Slacker Premium Radio.

    "From the inception of Slacker, our mission has been to give listeners the music they love wherever they are," said Dennis Mudd, CEO of Slacker. "Working with RIM allows us to provide our listeners with added flexibility and convenience to make the most of the Slacker Personal Radio service."

    "BlackBerry smartphones have evolved with advanced communications and multimedia capabilities to become modern lifestyle devices that are used in highly personalized ways and the free Slacker Personal Radio application is a great example of a mobile entertainment application that can add value to the user's mobile experience in a meaningful way," said Jim Balsillie, Co-CEO of Research In Motion.
