Google Local now available on Blackberry devices

Blackberry and Google announced this morning that Google Local is now available on the Blackberry wireless platform.

Google Local for mobile enables BlackBerry users to view maps and satellite imagery, find local businesses and get driving directions on their BlackBerry handsets. Google Local for mobile provides draggable maps, directions and imagery, as well as a "click to call" feature. Google Local for mobile will store any addresses you have typed in or used for directions for quick and access to previous locations. The satellite imagery viewing of Google Local for mobile allows users to zoom in on an image for a closer look at the terrain, zoom out for a grander perspective, or move the map in any direction. This interactive satellite view gives you a chance to explore and evaluate your locations in far greater detail.

Google Local for mobile is available for download for free at

Also announced was that Google Talk will be available for Blackberry this spring.
