Before we get into the BlackBerry side of things, we wanted to thank everyone who downloaded BGR Mobile for iPhone/iPod touch so far. We’ve had amazing feedback on the application and can’t thank you enough. We’re already #7 in the News category! In terms of the BlackBerry application, it is in development and since there are more variables with BlackBerrys (8300, 8310, 8320, 8330, 8800, 8820, 8830, 8100, 8110, 8120, 8130, 8210, 8220, 8900, 9000, 9500, 9530, and about 5 different OS versions — just kidding, kind of), we wanted to get one application out of the way so we can concentrate on the bigger challenges. We’re fully committed to bringing BGR Mobile to every major OS platform out there, so bear with us while we get our ducks in a row. Your wait won’t be for nothing — these applications are going to kick ass — there will be constant updates and feature additions as we go along. What we’re offering at this time so we don’t leave our beloved BlackBerry users high and dry is a BGR launcher. This will streamline accessing BGR from your device’s web browser by giving you a dedicated icon on the homescreen. We’ll keep everyone updated on the various BGR Mobile apps when we get a little closer. Thanks again!
