LinkedIn announced the launch of the LinkedIn application for BlackBerry smartphones through its website and on BlackBerry App World. The application complements LinkedIn's other mobile offerings for the iPhone and Palm Pre, giving users more choices on how to use LinkedIn away from their offices and computers.
The new LinkedIn application features native integration with the BlackBerry, allowing professionals to use the service within their BlackBerry's existing email, calendar, and contacts applications. Key functionality includes search, messages, network updates, connections, and invitations. The LinkedIn application for BlackBerry smartphones is free and available immediately for members to download on their BlackBerry Tour, BlackBerry Curve, and BlackBerry Bold series of smartphones. The application operates on devices running BlackBerry OS 4.3 or later.
