Research in Motion has released a new beta of an app for scheduling and participating in conference calls from your BlackBerry phone. It’s called Blackberry Mobile Conferencing and you can download the app from the BlackBerry Beta Zone.

The app integrates with your calendar and a notice pops up when it’s time for a conference call to begin, making it easy to join. You can also rejoin a conference if your call is dropped using the app’s reconnect feature.

If there are multiple call-in numbers for a conference, the app will pick the best number for you based on your location, although this feature is only available in North America for now.

The app also lets you change any meeting on your calendar into a conference call with a click.
