BlackBerry Gets Google Local & Google Talk Due in Spring


In its ever
broadening presence, Google has announced that it is expanding its services to
the BlackBerry platform. Available immediately, Google Local for mobile can be
downloaded for free, and will provide BlackBerry users with maps and satellite
imagery as well as the ability to receive driving directions and locate
addresses. Due this spring, Google Talk will also be provided for free, and
will enable BlackBerry users to chat and keep up with their contacts via the
Google Talk instant messaging system (Google Talk requires a free Gmail e-mail
account). Of course both applications require that you have a data service
subscription on your BlackBerry device, for which most providers charge.

Now if someone could just talk the crew over at Cerulean Studios in to making a BlackBerry version of Trillian, I'd be all set. Yeah, I know about VeriChat and IM+, I'm just partial to Trillian.
