It seems like forever that users have been waiting for BBC content to be made available for their BlackBerry. Not too long ago, BBC announced an iPlayer app for BlackBerry that turned out to be a weblink to their online content, not a native app. Today, the BBC announced that they are continuing with the development of native smartphone apps that should be available “later in the year.” The first app to launch won’t be anything too spectacular and will probably just be their news app which is already available for the iPhone. It would be great to see the BBC launch a full BBC experience with TV programming, radio and written news content. Maybe that’s a pipe dream.
