Blackberry Push Service Now Available to All App Developers


This is great news coming straight from Official BlackBerry Developer’s Blog announcing the release of BlackBerry Push Service SDK to app developers. The push service enables developers to develop Java apps or BlackBerry widgets that leverage RIM’s famous push technology to push images,text or audio content to millions of devices at once. With this I am sure we’ll see more super apps coming to BlackBerry in future.

What is BlackBerry Push Service?

The BlackBerry Push Service enables developers to easily develop Java applications or  BlackBerry Widgets that leverage RIM’s push technology either through the BlackBerry Enterprise Server (for enterprises) or BlackBerry Internet Service infrastructure (for consumers), so that content providers can reliably push images, text, or audio content to millions of BlackBerry devices at once. Unlike alternative push solutions that can only notify users that new content is available for download because of push message size limitations, with the BlackBerry Push Service, full content (up to an industry-leading 8KB in size) is pushed to the device and made immediately available for use.

Developers can visit for additional information, resources and tools. There is no cost to register and evaluate the BlackBerry Push Service for both Essentials and Plus tiers.
