Adam Nash (Vice President, Search & Platform Products at LinkedIn) announced at the BlackBerry Developer Conference in San Francisco, the launch of LinkedIn for BlackBerry. This has been a long awaited application for many BlackBerry® Device owners and is expected to be available by the end of this year. (2009) I will let you know as soon as it becomes available.
Imagine walking into any interview, any customer engagement or client meeting with the ability to look up the details on over 50 million professionals worldwide, in real-time. Soon this will be a reality, as this application will bring the powerful capabilities of LinkedIn to your BlackBerry.
LinkedIn for BlackBerry will also include deep integration with the native Messages, Contacts & Calendar applications on the BlackBerry platform. For example, here is an early screenshot of the native BlackBerry Messages application, with LinkedIn invitations and one-to-one messages integrated into the inbox:
LinkedIn for BlackBerry will join our existing suite of mobile products by the end of this year, marking the next step in our continuing effort to bring LinkedIn to wherever you work. This is just the beginning – expect continued enhancements and expansions of the LinkedIn mobile platform in 2010.
