Both MapQuest and Google are have launched new Blackberry Mobile Apps.
MapQuest’s application is called “MapQuest 4 Mobile” includes hybrid imagery, traffic information and a GPS “find me” feature. Users can also conduct their usual MapQuest business, such as conducting a search for a business. At first, MQ4M will only be available through Sprint on the BlackBerry 8830 and AT&T on the BlackBerry 8800, 8820, and 8310. Other handsets will be added in coming months.
Google’s new Blackberry app is a downloadable search application similar to the one for iPhone. Google says that searching via the app is faster than accessing Google via mobile web. The app includes Google Suggest and has quick links to other Google apps including Calendar and Docs.
