Salesforce released Chatter Mobile for Blackberry. Chatter, if you’re not familiar with it, is the company’s social product, that’s often been referred to as a "Facebook for the enterprise."

"This new Chatter Mobile client gives you access to Chatter from your BlackBerry," says Salesforce’s Jason McDowall.  "Salesforce’s Chatter Mobile will allow your users to stay on the pulse of their teams, accounts, and other important data in your organization."

Features include:

Chatter Mobile comes to blackberry– View updates about the people, groups, and records you follow

– Create posts (with photos) and add comments

– View documents and links shared by others

– View your coworkers’ profiles, and email them directly

This version does not include people or group search, and there are no record detail views or administrative controls. You can’t restrict access from a BlackBerry device, nor can you impose a passcode. 

Also, the version is only optimized for the BlackBerry Bold 9700, though it does work on some other models. It requires  OS v5.0 or higher.
