Android and BlackBerry Get Slacker Radio in Canada

Android and BlackBerry Get Slacker Radio in Canada
Are you looking to get some premium radio going on with your smartphone in Canada? We get stuck behind the curtain of the CRTC a little too often, but at least one service has managed to jump through the right hoops, because Slacker Radio is making its way to Canada via BlackBerry and Android devices.

The announcement has just been made that the Slacker Radio service is totally up and running for Canadians. The first thing you’ll need to do is head over to their website to create a new account and you’ll receive a 30-day free trial when you do.

From there, you can download the appropriate application for your BlackBerry smartphone or Android device, streaming your favorite music anywhere you have a wireless data connection. An app for the iPhone and iPod touch is on the way soon too.

After the 30 days, you’ll be on the hook for the Slacker Radio Plus subscription, which starts at $3.99 a month. With this hurdle overcome, I’m trying to be hopeful that last.fm will finally work on my Xbox 360. One can hope.
