The new slotRadio+ card will only have to be inserted in the BlackBerry smartphone one owns, and then users will have to navigate using the web browser on the device to http://m.slotradio.com to download the slotRadio+ application. There are two versions of slotRadio+ card available for Verizon's users, a Billboard Hits one, with modern tracks, and a Billboard Decades version, with songs from the ’80s, the ’90s, and more.
