Good news, crackberry addicts! Research In Motion has announced that it will begin rolling out the native Twitter application for BlackBerry smartphones next week on Wednesday, March 31. The information comes directly from the RIM/BlackBerry booth at the international Cellular Telephone Industries Association [CTIA] Wireless 2010 convention in Las Vegas. It wasn’t too long ago that RIM promised that the Twitter app was going to be released soon, and this time it appears that the Waterloo-based company kept its word.
We first learned about the native Twitter app for BlackBerry back in September of last year. Then on February 11, Research In Motion released an invite-only beta of the application to a group of selected bloggers and users.
The application looks very similar to the current native Facebook app for the BlackBerry platform. Early reviewers have mixed opinions about it. Though the most important opinion is that of the end-users. Those who use Twitter and BlackBerry smartphones will not have to wait long to give the application a try.
Erictric will let you know once the Twitter app for BlackBerry starts rolling out with the respective download information.
