Just in time for tonight’s party, our friends over at Slacker Radio let us know that the Slacker application for BlackBerry has had a full revision jump to version 2.0. According to them, with this version, performance has been significantly addressed, producing near instantaneous song transitions and skip times.  Though there will still be some dependencies on your network, play performance will get a dramatic boost.

When playing a station, you’ll notice the “next up” album art appears as you listen. When the album art appears, your skip times to the next song will be nearly instant and most all song transitions during playback will happen immediately.

If all of this sounds great to you, hit http://www.slacker.com from your BlackBerry Browser for the download of the updated version. Be sure to reboot your phone when you’re done, so the new install can clean up the old version for you.

    Doesn’t work any longer on a Canadian Carrier (Telus). It did before, but not now after the upgrade. :( It was great while it lasted.
