Slacker Radio sat us down at CES to show us their new Slacker Radio 3.0 for BlackBerry. They’ve showed up with a new, clean interface. One of the most compelling updates, though, is the ability to wirelessly cache your stations. With Slacker 3.0 and wireless caching enabled, your device will search first for wifi, then 3G if wifi isn’t available, late at night. It will also confirm that you have your phone plugged in, so your phone doesn’t cache the stations and you wake up with a dead battery. Once the cache is done, you wake up to fresh coffee and a some steaming goodness of new music. Check out the video for more details. You can expect Slacker 3.0 very soon.

Slacker are working on version 3.0 of their awesome streaming music app and Jessica at CNET got a preview of what we can expect. Version 3.0 will give users the ability to sync cached songs OTA, with a data or WiFi connection. Apparently the syncing process is a little slow unless you’re using WiFi but the feature is still a much wanted addition. The sync feature will only be available to Slacker Radio Plus members, which will run your about $4 per month. Expect Slacker 3.0 to hit App World in a few weeks.
