Slacker personal radio service comes to the Blackberry

Remember Slacker? Their personal radio service was one of the winners in the Gadling “best of 2008” lineup of travel technology products.

Users of a fairly recent Blackberry device can download the free Slacker application directly to their device by pointing their mobile browser to

The application offers all the same features you’ll find on the other Slacker players, plus you’ll be able to store several hours of tunes on a memory card (when installed).

With music cached on your memory card, you’ll be able to keep listening to music even when you are outside your network coverage area, or away from your WiFi network.

Slacker also announced that they’ll have an iPhone version of their player ready soon!
