RIM has just launched the Built for BlackBerry program, which promises to let consumers know if a particular accessory or case was specifically designed for a BlackBerry product via a Built for BlackBerry logo. This is similar to Apple's own Made for iPhone program. Companies that are in line to have Built for BlackBerry products in the coming year include Case-mate, Speck, Incipio, Otterbox, Tru Protection, iGrip, Vaja, Dicota, and Trexta.
