AvantGo Service Launched For BlackBerry Devices

A version of the popular AvantGo information service that will work on BlackBerry devices was announced Monday.

AvantGo provides access to a wide variety of news and other information that is delivered directly to wireless and mobile devices. Previously available only for Palm OS and Windows Mobile devices, iAnyWhere Solutions, the Sybase subsidiary that owns AvantGo, said the service will be available for BlackBerry devices in the next 30 days.

"Once used primarily for email, BlackBerry devices are increasingly being used by the business user for a wider range of applications, including access to Internet news and information," Neil Versen, senior director of AvantGo at iAnywhere, said in a statement.

The service, which was launched in 1999, already has seven million subscribers, according to iAnyWhere. The service is free.
