You live on your BlackBerry; we do, too. Today, TheStreet.com is rolling out our free BlackBerry application that automatically delivers the latest news and analysis from TheStreet.com.
No matter where you are, you can read the latest news, in its entirety, with TheStreet.com for BlackBerry. To get the free application, go to m.thestreet.com on your BlackBerry or visit us on your
laptop or desktop
now to get started.
This is different from a regular WAP site that takes time to load. Using "push" technology designed by our partners at Polar Mobile, we're delivering news to you so it's ready when you want it -- you will never wait for a story to download.
You can follow market data, create and edit your custom stock list, choose which news sections you want and more. Because the stories are delivered to your device as they publish here at TheStreet.com, you can read them in full even if you don't have a wireless signal.
In the days and weeks to come, we'll be working with Polar Mobile to build applications for other smartphones. We want to make this a better tool for you, so we need your feedback. Please
with your ideas as you test-drive our new application.
