Blackberry Approves Official Tumblr App (A Month Late)

After announcing the launch of Tumblr for Blackberry almost a month ago, it looks as if the boys and girls at RIM have finally listed Tumblr upon Blackberry App World.

We’re proud to announce that Tumblr BlackBerry App has been approved on BlackBerry App World, so fire up your BlackBerry and get to downloading. Future updates will be delivered through App World so that you’re alerted when the new stuff drops. This version also fixes a few pesky bugs with character encoding. (Tumblr Staff)

The Blackberry Tumblr app is nearly identical to its iPhone sibling, both which were built by Moblux (who originally created Tumblrette for the iPhone, before being anointed by the Tumblr team to make an official app).

Tumblr has not yet revealed whether they will consider creating an app for Android and Nokia fans, as well as an official iPad app for bloggers (who may appreciate the wider screen space).

Being listed upon Blackberry App world should help Tumblr compete against WordPress (who also has a Blackberry app), as well as Blogger and Squarespace (the latter two whose presence is sorely lacking upon the Blackberry App world).
