BlackBerry users no longer can use the official New York Times app to read news stories over their devices, in a fresh blow to Research In Motion, the maker of the smart phone once considered an essential tool for business professionals.
New York Times Co., which publishes the newspaper, said it had stopped supporting its applications for BlackBerry and the Palm Pre as of Monday, meaning the apps no longer will download news stories. "It's a matter of usage of our apps, and we dedicate our resources where we think there's the highest level of usage," said New York Times spokesman Eileen Murphy. "We've seen a drop-off."
