Jim Balsillie, co-CEO, Research In Motion, has said, “BlackBerry smartphone users have unsurprisingly always been quick to understand and lead mobile trends and we are seeing many of our customers strongly embrace mobile social networking as an integral part of their communications and day-to-day lives,”.

“MySpace was one of the first social networking sites to get it right and we are thrilled to join forces to continue evolving and enhancing the mobile social networking experience for our mutual user base,” Jim Balsillie has added.
