BBM5

UPDATE: To download OTA, go to BlackBerry.com/messenger from your device.

Finally, BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 has launched! The easiest way to download it would be directly from App World, as we’ve been having some issues downloading it from the mobile site at blackberry.com/blackberrymessenger.

The latest version of BlackBerry Messenger features:

  • 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
  • Download it now and let us know what you think!

      It’s http://www.blackberry.com/messenger not http://www.blackberry.com/blackberrymessenger. At least that’s what I found last night.

      I really hate it, like really really hate it. to send a picture it only sends in full size, gets expensive for Canadians on Rogers without unlimited data plans
