London, UK - Next2Friends? (, the mobile social media platform, today announces the availability of its innovative ?Live? mobile video streaming application and ?Social? Suite for the BlackBerry? Curve? and Pearl? series smartphones from Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM)(TSX: RIM). Already available for the Symbian S60 & S40 range of devices and the Windows Mobile 6 platform, Next2Friends is now actively extending its support and development for the BlackBerry OS as well as a number of other popular operating systems.

Next2Friends? Live enables people to share their lives from anywhere, from broadcasting the little things that make up the day, to capturing a must-see-moment, to bringing happenings across the world closer to home. The application, soft-launched in late 2007 and officially released in June 2008, is continually being enhanced by the Next2Friends? development team to deliver the optimal service for all the people already sharing their lives through real-time, rich media. Some of the new features that have recently been incorporated are one click streaming, the ability to zoom, pause or re-start live streams and automatic quality selection that guarantees the best streaming experience independent of location, carrier or connection speeds.

?We are excited to be making Next2Friends Live available for BlackBerry users.? commented Anthony Nystrom, CTO of Next2Friends?. ?By bringing Next2Friends to the BlackBerry Pearl and Curve we will be opening up a whole new world of connectivity and interactivity to this surprisingly untapped segment of the industry.?

The Next2Friends? mobile pack has been designed so people can share their life and connect with others anywhere by vastly extending the capability and usability of mobile devices. The Mobile Social Suite includes two-click photo uploading, media rich opinion polling and location-based social networking. Seamlessly integrated with all the extra features on, the total package is more complete, more compelling and more relevant to the needs and desires of today?s consumer than any other service.

Users can sign up for the free service at, download the application to their BlackBerry smartphone in seconds, and begin using it immediately. Videos captured with the Next2Friends Live application are automatically streamed to the user?s personal video library where they can be easily shared with friends or embedded on other social networking profiles, websites and blogs.

Research in Motion (RIM) is one of the leading designers and manufacturers of smartphones in the US, with the BlackBerry line commanding 46% of the market in Q2 2008. With over 5 million BlackBerry units shipped in Q2 and 17.4% market share worldwide, there is little doubt that development for BlackBerry is a winning move. Driven by innovation and utility for both the business and consumer worlds, there is little sign that this momentum will slow.

Advanced compression technology ensures that all content is reduced to a fraction of its original size, with no degradation of quality or delays.

Fully supported devices include popular models from Nokia, Sony Ericsson, LG, Motorola, Samsung and now select models from BlackBerry.
