Wall Street Journal for the Blackberry

You can now read Wall Street Journal articles on your Blackberry (8700, 8800, Pearl and Curve models supported).

The WSJ Reader allows access to all the WSJ's articles, using a simple tabbed interface. You can also get alerts on pre-selected topics, manage your stock portfolio and easily subscribe to content. The Reader provides a brief of an article prior downloading the full story.

One of the nice features of the Reader is its ability to cache content to your device, allowing access in coverage-limited areas (think airplane).

While the Reader does have an ad banner in it, and while I'm not sure when (it's not really a matter of 'if' - the site actually says "Full access to subscriber content for a limited time only") WSJ will start charging for content access, I'm going to use it for as long as I can get it for free.

Download the WSJ Reader here - but pay attention: you need to have an unlimited access plan to really enjoy it for free!
