Research In Motion today announced that Google's instant messaging software, Google Talk and mapping program, Google Local, will be supported on the BlackBerry wireless platform. If you don't have a Gmail account, you can get an SMS invite by going here. Users may invite other Gmail users to their contact lists directly from their BlackBerry handset, just as they would from a PC.

In addition, users can download Google Local for mobile, which allows BlackBerry users to view maps, find local businesses and get driving directions on their BlackBerry handsets. It also provides draggable maps, directions as well as a "click to call" feature.

Google Local for mobile is already available at Google Talk however, is expected to be available this Spring.
