Whrrl rolls out client for BlackBerry users

Apple should hire this guy, but not as a cameraman

Pelago’s mobile social discovery service Whrrl ties the social networking concept into a map of your surrounding area, allowing users to rate and review local spots, and share their current location and status with trusted friends. While it’s an awesome idea, its growth thus far has been stunted by its limited list of native mobile clients. Sure, users could interact with Whrrl via SMS – but where’s the fun in that?

Today, Pelago announced a Whrrl client for the BlackBerry Pearl and Curve, joining the Nokia n95 on the list of supported devices. Users of these devices can grab the client at http://m.whrrl.com (Oddly, the mobile site also lists downloads for RAZRs and the Samsung M610, which go unmentioned anywhere else on the site.)

Expect the iPhone to find its way onto that list soon enough, following a $5.6 million iFund VC injection by Kleiner Perkins last week.
