Over the last few months we’ve seen a huge increase in Blackberry devices visiting the News24 mobile website – m.news24.com. In fact - four Blackberry devices currently head the list of our most active devices - with the Blackberry 8520 Curve leading the pack. The 8520 is a popular choice due to the affordable packages currently offered by Vodacom and MTN which includes unlimited web browsing and data usage in apps (Via BIS) for less than R200 per month.

The QWERTY keyboard and dedicated Twitter, Facebook and Mxit apps also makes the 8520 a hit with digital natives who live their hyper-connected lives through their mobiles. It’s no wonder Vodacom have sold over a million Blackberry devices  in South Africa!

We are therefore very excited to announce the launch of the News24 Blackberry application.

Designed specifically for Blackberry devices, the app has a clean and simple user interface and super fast content feeds allowing Blackberry users to access the latest breaking news quickly and easily.

The latest content from News24, Sport24, Fin24, Wheels24 and Channel24 is available directly in the application and users have a 3 day view of the weather in their city on the homescreen. Similar to News24’s other apps, Blackberry users can submit news pics directly from the app, view other user photos and share news stories via E-mail, Twitter and Facebook.

To download the News24 Blackberry application - Go to http://m.news24.com from your Blackberry device and click on the Get News24 installed on your phone link. The page will detect that you are using a Blackberry device and download the correct version to your device.
