Free IM client for BlackBerry connects Yahoo, MSN, Gtalk and AIM


friendplay im client

Friendplay.com has launched a free instant messaging application for BlackBerry and Java enabled phones with Yahoo, MSN, Gtalk and AIM messaging connectivity.

Download your free copy by going to im.friendplay.com on your BlackBerry browser.

Instead of one-to-one chat sessions, users can create multiple chat rooms and add their friends into a frequently chatted friend list. Other than free chat, the application is able to backup your contact list so that you can retrieve your friend list which stores the phone numbers in case they have lost their mobile phones.


BlackBerry Instant Message clients updated (AIM, Yahoo, GTalk, MSN)


Instant Message clients

AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo Chat, Google Talk and MSN Messenger have all been updated and are ready for download. The applications have gone from version 2.1.44 to 2.1.45. I can’t find any documentation about added features or bug fixes so if you find any, be sure to comment.

One potential update includes the ability to link MSN Messenger contacts to contacts in your BlackBerry address book.

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.

JiveTalk update features MySpace IM support


JiveTalkEveryone’s favourite handheld chat client has been updated to version 1.0.3. JiveTalk lets you access AIM, MSN, Yahoo!, GTalk, ICQ, Jabber, and now MySpace IM contacts all in the same app on your BlackBerry. This update also includes AIM buddy icons and some UI fixes. Thanks Josep!

Palm Centro coming to Sprint


Palm CentroGizmodo’s procured a press shot of Palm’s upcoming device, the Centro, and given a few extra details, Palm may be working its way where RIM’s presence is negligible. The Centro will be geared towards the youth bracket, with a pricetag to match: $99. Sprint will have an exclusive deal for 90 days before other carriers will start seeing it. EVDO speeds plus touchscreen and a full QWERTY keypad make for a decent package at that price. The picture also has MSN, Yahoo! and AOL IM clients all in tabbed view, which is another step in the right direction for capturing a younger market. Is the Centro something that a BlackBerry-toting dad would get for his kid over, say, a Sidekick iD?
