Twitter for BlackBerry Update: Public Release Date No Longer March 31st

March 29th, 2010

twitterforblackberrybeta Last week we brought word straight from RIM’s Twitter for BlackBerry booth at CTIA that March 31st would ring in public availability of the app. However, today I received the following update from RIM:

The March 31st launch date for the public beta of Twitter was prematurely shared at CTIA. The application will not leave its current limited beta in March. As of right now, the launch date hasn’t been decided and the team is working to make sure the next release is feature-rich and has a great user experience before opening the app to everyone. 

So there you have it. Public availability will not be coming this week as we were initially told. I know that kind of sucks, but at the same time it’s not a bad thing if the extra time is going to mean more features and an overall improved user experience. And of course there are lots of great twitter apps out there already (see our Ultimate BlackBerry Twitter Client Roundup) to make the wait easier. We’ll let you know when we have more news on this one.

CTIA 2010: Twitter for BlackBerry Available March 31st

March 23rd, 2010

twitterforblackberrybeta2 After the keynote this morning I rolled by the BlackBerry booth and stumbled upon the Twitter pod. After some smooth talking (just kidding, no smooth talking required), I was informed that the Official Twitter for BlackBerry client will be rolling out to the public on March 31st. Only a few weeks ago it was rolled out as an invite-only beta, but if you still haven’t checked it out you won’t have to wait much longer. The beta has been going strong and although the results are mixed, everyone who hasn’t yet had a chance to play with RIM’s own Twitter client will surely be itching to get a hold of it in just over a week. Thats all we know for now, so keep it locked here and we’ll bring you more details if anything pops up.
