New BlackBerry IM service offers voice and picture sharing

JiveTalk currently rocks the multi-platform instant messaging on BlackBerry these days, but I just got wind of Palringo, which not only covers ICQ, AIM, Live Messenger, GTalk, Yahoo!, and a bunch of other popular IM services, but also lets you share voice notes and pictures easily. There’s also a community element to it, where you can join chat groups for mass communication. It’s a free OTA download, though still in beta, and there’s enterprise rollouts available if you’re in the market. Give it a shot, and let us know how it stacks up against your other mobile IM experiences.

WTF? Why does their website keep trying to open my Adobe PDF reader every time I click something?

Also, like above, I also can’t get anything to connect.

Same thing for me. Try to add a service (aim or whatever) and nothing happens.

Same issues as everyone else,can’t add services..had to download the desktop version and install “services” that way but even after that I had disconnects and messages fail,it gives off the whole this was not ready for release vibe,so with that being said..downloaded..installed..tried..epic fail and removed,jivetalk still has my heart in the blackberry im dept.

Palringo really sucks! Can’t even add any service! A total let down…
