Aiming to Turn the Dial Away From the Verizon iPhone, RIM Announces BlackBerry Radio App

While much of the noise on Thursday is around the Verizon iPhone, Research in Motion is hoping that a few people will tune in to its news.

The company announced plans for BlackBerry Radio, a music discovery app that lets those with the latest BlackBerry operating system access both Internet and traditional radio stations and connect to the Amazon MP3 store to buy a song they like.

For now, it’s just a beta, available only to selected testers who are running BlackBerry 6 devices.

The announcement comes ahead of a developer event in San Francisco this afternoon. Mobilized will be on the scene for that as well.
