What: Blackberry gets a new app for LinkedIn
What’s cool: The site is world’s largest professional network with more than 60 million members globally, so it makes a lot of sense for this business handset to finally provide access to this site through a direct app.
A LinkedIn application for BlackBerry smartphones has been launched on the BlackBerry App World. LinkedInalready has apps for the iPhone and Palm Pre. The application features native integration with the BlackBerry, which allows professionals to use LinkedIn within their BlackBerry’s existing email, calendar and contacts applications.
The application is free and available immediately for members to download on their BlackBerry Tour, Curve and Bold series of smartphones. The application operates on devices running BlackBerry OS 4.3 or later. Full integration of the LinkedIn application with native BlackBerry applications requires BlackBerry OS 4.6 or later.
