Posted by Knowlton Thomas

Toronto's Score Media Inc. partnered with mobile software developers Five Mobile Inc., also from Toronto, to launch a ScoreMobile app optimized for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.

It will provide sports fans with access to real-time scores, stats, news, live blogs, and original video.

“ScoreMobile for BlackBerry smartphones launched two years ago,” says Dale Fallon, Vice President, Digital Products, Score Media Inc. “Due to the overwhelming success to date it was clear that an app for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet was an essential part of our mobile strategy. The BlackBerry PlayBook is elegant and powerful, which is very much how we think of ScoreMobile. Our fans have extremely high standards in terms of usability, and we’ve worked hard to deliver a stunning overall experience on this exciting new platform.”   

“ScoreMobile applications have found great success on the BlackBerry platform and we are excited about the launch of the ScoreMobile application for the BlackBerry PlayBook,” said Tyler Lessard, Vice President of BlackBerry Global Alliances and Developer Relations at RIM. “With real-time updates, interactive features and original video, the application is optimized for the PlayBook’s form factor in either portrait or landscape mode.”
