Hands-On Mobile and Activision announce that Guitar Hero III Mobile is now available on BlackBerry smartphones from Research In Motion (RIM). Published as part of Hands-On Mobile's exclusive worldwide partnership with Activision, Guitar Hero III Mobile maintains the same high quality gameplay experience that fans around the world have embraced with the Guitar Hero console games. Already breaking mobile game records on two of the largest U.S. operators, the game will be available on the nation's top four mobile carriers by April 2008.

Featuring four authentic guitars and three venues, the game challenges players to hit number keys in synch with colored notes that appear on a scrolling fret board. The game offers 15 instantly accessible tracks taken from the console series, including "Cherub Rock", "Miss Murder", "Monsters", "Suck My Kiss", and "Trippin' On A Hole", and offers subscribers the opportunity to expand their playlist with three new songs every month. After a year, players will be able to access over 50 songs and 150 unique levels across all three difficulties (easy, medium, and expert).

As part of an exclusive licensing agreement, the game will be distributed to BlackBerry smartphone users by mobile game distributor Magmic Games, via its online storefront,, a one-stop entertainment solution for the BlackBerry platform. To access the game, users can simply go to and select Guitar Hero III Mobile.
