California – MobileTribe announces the launch of a new generation of social converged services for BlackBerry® smartphones from Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM; TSX: RIM). The MobileTribe application lets you organize your life by blending your social and personal communities and address books from Facebook®, MySpace®, Orkut®, Plaxo®, Yahoo® and Google® into one easy-to-use application on your BlackBerry smartphone. Leveraging inexpensive international Voice/SMS at savings of up to 98% and the true push capabilities of the BlackBerry® platform, the new application greatly enriches real-time communications between friends virtually anywhere in the world.
With MobileTribe on your BlackBerry smartphone, you can easily get to your address book and communicate with friends using one of the many channels. It is as easy as selecting your friend’s picture to make a call, send a text or write an email.
MobileTribe’s multimedia feature no longer limits you to what you can enjoy and share; you can get digital media streaming to your BlackBerry smartphone from the Internet or your desktop. You can also view your pictures on Flickr®, Picasa® and social networks right on your handset.
MobileTribe's intuitive and easy to use application brings online social networking to your BlackBerry smartphone, allowing you to browse friends, message friends, view and comment on pictures, blog, receive alerts, access Yahoo mail, Gmail and much more on the go.
ISV partners can have access to the MobileTribe services through a rich set of APIs to create new application offerings for BlackBerry smartphones and other mobile devices.
