Telus BlackBerry Curve 8350i Launch — Ian Willis interview


Here’s some more video goodness of our time at AIM Autosport for the Telus BlackBerry Curve 8350i launch event. I had a great time talking to Ian Willis, one of the founders of AIM, about a variety of things: why his company needs a PTT BlackBerry running on the Mike network, how cool his car is, and a special project he’s working on with RIM/Telus (it’s quite cool).

BlackBerry service books for AIM and ICQ now on AT&T


Service books

Finally, AT&T is releasing the service books to run native AIM and ICQ clients on BlackBerry. If you’re an IM fiend, I suggest heading over to mobile.blackberry.com and downloading both apps. The clients are working smoothly with the BlackBerry OS and they compliment GTalk and Windows Live Messenger, making you and your device the ultimate IM machine.



Free IM client launches for BlackBerry


If you’re looking tempted by Mundu, but remain a penny-pincher, Instango just launched, offering free support across multiple instant messaging systems, like GTalk, ICQ, AIM, MSN, Yahoo, QQ, Gadu-Gadu and Jabber. Instango also features SMS, mail and RSS access, file and picture sending, as well as a push-to-talk system. Sounds like it’s worth a shot if you’re still shopping around for that one client to handle all your chatting needs.
