Considering that BlackBerry phones are generally viewed as business devices, it’s actually a little surprising to see that the iPhone LinkedIn app has been around for a good 18 months and there wasn’t a LinkedIn BlackBerry app in sight. Now that is set to change as LinkedIn has just released a free dedicated BlackBerry app. The company said the reason for the delay is that they wanted to create a product that wasn’t just a copy of its iPhone app, rather something that was specifically designed for the BlackBerry. That’s idea is evident when you find out that the app can integrate with native BlackBerry apps, such as calendar and mail, allowing you to click on the name of someone you’re supposed to meet, and instantly check their LinkedIn profile. Now the next question on everyone’s lips is whether there will be a LinkedIn Android app anytime soon.
