CBS Sports Mobile BlackBerry App Debuts

Who says the BlackBerry is only for business use? Not CBS Sports, which launched the CBS Sports Mobile BlackBerry App to provide users with quick access to scores and coverage of the National Football League, NCAA football, Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, NCAA basketball, the National Hockey League, golf, tennis, and auto racing.

The app displays the current day’s scoreboard when opened, and it can be customized to show only the sports each user wishes to display. Users can toggle through all of the sports mentioned above, with each featuring a scoreboard atop the section, as well as news and content.

The app is supported by all BlackBerry devices from the 8300 series on.

CBS Mobile senior vice president and general manager Rob Gelick said, “With the NFL and college football in full swing, along with postseason baseball and the start of the NBA and NHL seasons, there isn’t a better time to provide mobile sports fans with an app to stay on top of all the scores and news.”
