RIM is really starting to **** me off.
Promising software updates with little to no differences at all.
Constantly changing release dates on phones
Just not keeping up with what consumers want in a smartphone these days.
With the flurry of new videos that have released today with Mobile World Congress 2011, it just wouldn't be complete without a BB Messenger news update from RIM. As announced recently by RIM, BlackBerry Messenger will have a mobile gifting platform in which users will be able to integrate with BlackBerry App World and carrier billing systems to allow BlackBerry subscribers to instantly gift airtime, apps and other carrier services from one subscriber to another using BBM. Not much of a cosmetic change going on, but some other new features discussed in the video will be:
More freedom and ability to send files of larger sizes and video to BBM contacts.
BBM chat within 3rd party applications with the ability to interact with other users in games, media, ect.
Developer Tools are suppose to be released by RIM sometime by March, and BlackBerry users will see the new BlackBerry Messenger 6.0 roll out sometime around May of this year.
Can anybody confirm this? Can bbm be used to chat cross-platform now with other im clients?

This does not mean that BBM can talk cross-platform with other IM apps. IIUIC, it means an app can be integrated with BBM so that two people with BBM and the same app can converse within the app. Right?
It now has integration with some third party apps like ScoreMobile and Poynt. Not sure how useful this will be for me though as I only have 4 BBM contacts left. I am down to two co-workers, my brother in-law, and my wife. Everyone else has gone Android or iPhone.
