Whrrl LogoHey, more LBS/Web 2.0 news. I’m beginning to notice a trend. How do I know that this Whrrl for BlackBerry announcement is Web 2.0 related? Well, it’s about ‘mobile social discovery’, ‘user generated content’, and they spell the name of their application without any vowels. Just a handy heads up for all you old school BlackBerry users who aren’t on Facebook yet.

That’s right, Pelago announced support today of their mobile social discovery service for BlackBerry Pearl and Curve devices. Whrrl combines mapping and micro-blogging technology for discovering and sharing local information on people, places, events and experiences. The application is free to download, but is only available right now to people in the U.S., so post a comment BlackBerry Nation and let us know what you think.

Whrrl can be downloaded at www.whrrl.com. Web 2.0, baby!

    Are you really surprised it’s US only support??? Seems like more and more apps are been released without Canadian support. Kinda sucks for us, and that the BlackBerry is Canadian!

    I followed the instructions and I can’t get logged in. Every time I put in either my phone # or my E-mail address along with my password, it keeps reading on the bottom of the Screen. . . . . .Sign in Failed. I have a BB Curve 8330.

    From what we know about Whrrl, it’s hard to say that this is an app to really get excited about. But then again, there should be a reason why it received a slice of the Apple iFund, so let’s give this one the benefit of the doubt.
