When I think of Blackberry users, I think of accountants, lawyers and anyone else who wears a tie and carries a briefcase. You know, really boring people. MySpace users, sorta the opposite.
But there must be some significant overlap, because 400,000 people downloaded the MySpace Blackberry application in the last week, says MySpace – it was launched on November 12.
Both RIM and MySpace say this is a record – no other application has been downloaded so quickly onto Blackberry devices, and MySpace has never had an application on any platform be downloaded as often.
MySpace also says that 15 million messages have been sent and received via the mobile app, and users have updated their mood and status more than 2 million times.
