BLOOMBERG application
 
I have recently seen the Bloomberg application on iphone and it looks really good. Is there something similar for BB 8310?

BLOOMBERG application
 
You can get Bloomberg for BlackBerry, not sure if it's exactly like the iPhone version... Google for "Bloomberg on BlackBerry v1.8.9.5"

Just added to my Mini Version Tracker List:
Bloomberg: 1.8.9.5 - OTA/Web Info ($ Requires Bloomberg Anywhere subscription)

Garias 09-30-2008 06:22 AM

Is it free? or does it require real log in credentials?

Bloomberg for Blackberry requires a Bloomberg Anywhere subscription, which runs about $1800/mo (and a 2-year contract). It is mobile version of the Bloomberg desktop application.

Wow, $1,800 a month...what a bargin...lol.

http://bbmobile.bloomberg.com - I've installed it about 50 times on the users at this financial company I work for. I don't think it costs anything, as long as you have a login.

The iphone bloomberg app is a joke compared to what you can do with the Blackberry version. Blackberry is an extension of your standard Bloomberg desktop version and yes has a price tag most users won't be paying. Strictly for the financial professional.

You are correct, there is no charge for the Bloomberg for BlackBerry app but the login is what costs about $1800/mo.

I have a Bloomberg and I love the BlackBerry app.

I think this thread has gone in circles but really hasn't answered the original question--- is it correct that Bloomberg does not make a free application for the BlackBerry similar to the very nice free application Bloomberg makes for te Iphone? Wall Strret Journal does make a free application for BlackBerries, but, frankly, the Bloomberg Iphone app is superior to the WSJ Blackberry app.

If anybody from Bloomberg is reading this, we'd love to have such an app for the BB.

Useless without login.


I love Bloomberg radio on Sirius.

A working app for my Blackberry would be nice.

Thanks for the information.

this is for a windows mobile device, eg. blackjack, NOT blackberry

jimdarcy 11-22-2008 10:20 AM

Wall Strret Journal does make a free application for BlackBerries

I have not been able to read the WSJ daily newspaper on my blackberry in recent months. It used to be available, but no longer is as far as i can tell.

All you had to do is to click on the BlackBerry link on that page and you would have gotten the link that JSanders posted.
