In their latest newsletter, Zumobi announced that they’re putting the “finishing touches” on the BlackBerry version of their software. If you head over to their home page you can sign up to be informed the minute it’s released. They’ve also made a couple of additions to their Tiles gallery, from notables CMT and Comedy Central. The CMT Tile delivers up-to-date news in the country music world, while Comedy Central offers up a new Joke of the Day Tile.

Zumobi is a really neat new widget application that aims to change the mobile web experience with the use of something they call Tiles. You can pick 16 Tiles from a list of hundreds, some of which are built by business while others are user-designed. The tiles range from showing your favorite blogs, to giving you weather conditions, to branded ones that let you watch or listen to clips from TV shows, to all manner of other things. The interface is very slick — check out the demo — and the software is free to boot. The only downside is that they don’t yet offer BlackBerry compatibility, but they’ll be releasing a public beta of the software at WES.
Zumobi, a slick new content delivery platform for mobile, won the Consumer Mobile Widgets award at CTIA Wireless, which wrapped up just yesterday. If you haven’t seen it, Zumobi offers 16 zoomable content tiles that you can arrange, swap and transfer from your mobile. A BlackBerry client should be along soon, so keep your eye on these guys.
Although the BlackBerry version is penciled in for a Q2 ’08 beta release, Zumobi has released a beta for Windows Mobile today, available for free download over here. Zumobi’s a kind of web-based content delivery platform that lets users set up tiles of their favourite stuff and share them with other users. Developers can make their own tiles for whatever product they want to get on there. Family Guy, the Associated Press, MTV and Amazon are just some of the big names already set up. The interface is pretty cool, letting you zoom in and out of sections of tiles. This hip little video shows the goods.
