Facebook drives mainstream BlackBerry adoption

April 3, 2008

More than 1 million BlackBerry users have downloaded Research in Motion's Facebook application, allowing them to make updates, send messages and share photos through the popular site via their handheld devices.  RIM's co-CEO reflects that the BlackBerry is no longer exclusive to the "Bay Street set," but is now being lovingly adopted by university students and teens as well.  The Facebook application is used by about 7% of all BlackBerry users.  The Globe & Mail | Inside Facebook
