    BBM 5.0 Global Launch: Available Now!

    Advertisement



    BlackBerry® Messenger 5.0 Launch Date: Global – October 7, 2009 BlackBerry® Messenger is an instant messaging application that allows BlackBerry Smartphone users to send and receive instant messages with other BlackBerry Smartphone users. BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 is the latest release. Features: • Enhanced SMS -Allows for a conversational chat-like user experience with a single contact list for the most personal mobile-to-mobile communications ? Note: BlackBerry® Device Software 5.0 and later is required for the SMS functionality. • Avatars - Users can choose a picture from the BlackBerry Smartphone gallery and save it as their personal avatar, which will be seen by their contacts. They can also view other avatars in the contact list and zoom in on the avatars of contacts participating in a conversation by selecting “View participants.” • Large Media File Transfer - Users can send/receive large file transfers up to 6 megabytes for pictures, files and audio. ? Note: BlackBerry Device Software 5.0 is required to receive large media files. • Enhanced Group Functionality - Allows for the ability to update, share & communicate with a subset community. • Bar-code Identity - A user can add a contact to the BlackBerry Messenger contact list by displaying a 2-dimensional bar code that invitees can capture with their device cameras. • Reliable Contact Backup and Restore - Contacts are backed-up on a server and do not require the need for BlackBerry® Desktop Manager. Many of us have been using the leaked version of BBM 5.0 but it’s not perfect and is most likely an early release compared to what is internally available today. According to the leaked tip the “Enhanced SMS” feature of BBM 5.0 is only available to BlackBerry users who are running OS 5.0 or later. I wonder if this means an OS 5.0 launch is also around the corner? That would definitely be a nice surprise!

    I wonder if they will make this available via App World or the mobile.blackberry.com site or what...since generally BBM is packaged with the rest of the device software...hmmm

    OTA would be a + as well as a working version for those of us using our dinosaurs(83XX Curve) running 5.0.

    Wishful thinking!!! I think its just about time for a UPGRADE

    Why when it is something that you really want it takes forever to come available?

    I have 5.0 annnnnnd whoopdy doooooo?!
    1. If it takes this long to make a tiny little program work on their own phone, what does that tell you?
    2. I guess our BB's will NEVER have a completely working OS at that rate!
    3. I bet Google could make the BBM work and get it released before RIM.
    4. Jim Balsillie worries about us all the time he's trying to buy a hockey team with our $$$.


    Poll: Do you want a phone that works as advertised, all the time, or do you want a faulty OS with a good IM that there's already plenty of for that phone?

    I'm just sayin.......

    Love that I had to download app world (again) to get this. Let's see how much slower my phone gets now!
