LinkedIn for BlackBerry Review: What to Expect From Version 1.0

LinkedIn for BlackBerry is a much anticipated app, especially given the BlackBerry and LinkedIn demographics are similar. While the app has been available on the iPhone for around 2 years, the BlackBerry launch was significantly delayed. In speaking with Adam Nash, VP of Search and Platform Products at LinkedIn, there doesn’t seem to be any real reason for the delay, or at least one they felt comfortable sharing. Their explanation for the gap between launches amounted to “it was important to find the right time to build for BlackBerry.” In my opinion, the right time was 2 years ago, but it’s literally none of my business.

Comments

In the latest BlackBerry Connection Newsletter, RIM mentioned that the official Twitter app and LinkedIn app are “almost here”. The newsletter doesn’t mention any specific release dates, but if they’re talking about it now, I’m hoping within a month is a reasonable definition of “soon”. Also of significance, is the fact that RIM is calling their official Twitter app a “business app”.
