Turns out that the anonymous tipster that sent a message to Crackberry wasn’t joking. The blackberry messenger is now available for download.
To read see his message, check out my previous post Here.
So, what’s the difference between this version and the last?
There isn’t an official change log yet, but there are noticeable changes.
- Avatars can be easily set up and then populated from BlackBerry Contacts
- Group Functionality – allows groups of friends, family and personal contacts to stay connected & share experiences instantly on their BlackBerry smartphones:
- ongoing group chat
- sharing pictures
- organizing tasks and events with shared lists and calendars
- Bar-code identity – easily add/invite contacts to BlackBerry Messenger by displaying a 2-dimensional bar code that the invitees can capture with their BlackBerry camera
- Large Media File Transfer – up to 6MB
You can download it OTA Here.
Or download it from the Blackberry App World.
