BlackBerry users can now download video from CNN and ABC News

While we might still be recovering from the latest BlackBerry outage (fine, it didn’t really affect us ‘cuz we’re on a BES), video content from ABC News and is now available for download to BlackBerry users running OS 4.2 or higher. The videos download with one-click access, though it’s worth noting that acquiring a 3 megabyte file over an EDGE connection is less than thrilling. That said, this is pretty big move for you media-hungry ‘Berry addicts out there, and should make a nice addition to the BlackBerry bag O’ tricks. Unfortunately, YouTube mobile is still a no go, but we’ll take what we can get. This feature is available immediately by hitting up either the CNN or ABC News site. Get your video download on, folks!
