Announces Service for BlackBerry Smartphone Users

Oct 31, 2008 announced the launch of a service that will make deeper information accessible on BlackBerry smartphones from Research In Motion (RIM). Users can subscribe to this new free service directly from their BlackBerry smartphone and an icon will appear on their home screen that displays high-level weather conditions based on weather data regularly "pushed" to the smartphone; users can also click on the weather icon to instantly access updated and more detailed weather information including hourly forecasts, 10-day forecasts, severe weather alerts, and radar images.
