Very cool. Too bad the 8830 is not supported.

I know... but I can only assume they're working on versions for all/most of the BB models.

Good information, I'm currently running it and I'm quite impressed.

I'm getting an error that says, "Unexpected http error occurred: 500 while Checking licensing" on my T-Mobile 8320.

Downloaded but getting the java.lang.NullPointerException error when trying to run it.

I have a 8900 with .168 on it, first time I've seen this error. I've checked and the only other applications running are Browser, Messages, Call Log, Home Screen and BB Messenger.

Still don't know what can be causing it.

It works on my 8330. It seems that your pick artists or songs amd you are stuck with them. NOT like slacker.
Am I missing something?

Okay.
Please disregard my above post. This is great technology. I guess it gives us related songs to what we choose initially.

Exactly. That's the whole idea behind Pandora... you enter artists you like... and Pandora will play those artists along with other artists that are similar. You can also create different "stations". One station for classical, one for rock, etc.

Well, the OP mentioned that it was available for Bold, Curve and Pearl, so I assumed that my 8900 falls under the Curve category, apparently it's not. it's weird because so far 8900 and Bold shares most of the apps due to same 4.7 OS.

So is there a caching option similar to Slacker? If not... tsk, tsk... I spend too much time underground in subways to rely on OTA streaming.

I am in heaven. It doesn't lag like Slacker. Since I'm not sure that it'll work on the 8900, I'm sticking with the Curve for a while.

8900 is not listed as a compatible device.

Does load faster than Slacker, but no caching, interface sucks compared to Slacker, and no Bluetooth headphone support???? Come on, why even make this garbage.

If you are in Canada don't bother downloading. As it is with the site they can tell your IP address and they can't provide music outside USA.. I love Pandora and it sucks now that they baned us here in Canada

I could never get the caching option to work for me...i would select to cache a station, it just wouldn't....not important enough to me to spend the time to figure it out....I was pretty excited about it when a friend sent me the news but I didn't know that the Storm isn't supported yet... :(, still stuck with Slacker I suppose.
