    BlackBerry Messenger 5.0

    Launch Date: Global - October 7, 2009

    BlackBerry Messenger is an instant messaging application that allows BlackBerry Smartphone users to send and receive instant messages with other BlackBerry Smartphone users.

    BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 is the latest release.

    Features:

    * Enhanced SMS -Allows for a conversational chat-like user experience with a single contact list for the most personal mobile-to-mobile communications
    o Note: BlackBerry Device Software 5.0 and later is required for the SMS functionality.
    * Avatars - Users can choose a picture from the BlackBerry Smartphone gallery and save it as their personal avatar, which will be seen by their contacts. They can also view other avatars in the contact list and zoom in on the avatars of contacts participating in a conversation by selecting "View participants."
    * Large Media File Transfer - Users can send/receive large file transfers up to 6 megabytes for pictures, files and audio.
    o Note: BlackBerry Device Software 5.0 is required to receive large media files.
    * Enhanced Group Functionality - Allows for the ability to update, share & communicate with a subset community.
    * Bar-code Identity - A user can add a contact to the BlackBerry Messenger contact list by displaying a 2-dimensional bar code that invitees can capture with their device cameras.
    * Reliable Contact Backup and Restore - Contacts are backed-up on a server and do not require the need for BlackBerry Desktop Manager.

    I think it's going to coincide with 5.0's launch

    Installed it and then went back to the old BBM (5.0 seemed to make the device sluggish)

    I personally am excited for the SMS capability built into BBM. Yes it seems as if it will run with builds of 5.0.

    So does this mean official v5 device software will launch on or around the same date?

    I really hope that .230 isn't the final release launch of the 5.0 OS. I have it on my tour and I enjoy it, but it's still too buggy to be a final release (in my opinion). They definitely should fix it before going live, otherwise they could easily ruin the excitement for 5.0.

    There is no way BBM 5.0.0.8 makes your device sluggish. This is due to another app on your device. I have BBM 5 on 3 devices and have countles friends and co-workers do as well and none have ever complained of BBM 5 making things sluggish.

    I personally am excited for the SMS capability built into BBM. Yes it seems as if it will run with builds of 5.0.

    +1. This will be awesome.

    I would think so as all the recent RIM updates (app world, IM clients, Facebook) have been compatible with OS 5.0.0.xxx.


    Hopefully the launch date is tomorrow. I doubt the launch date for OS 5.0 is this week though.

    Why would BBM 5.0 come out before OS 5.0 are released? Doesnt BBM 5.0 only run on OS 5.0s?

    it will work on OS 4.7 and OS 5.0 but not all the features will work with 4.7

    To make a correction, the currently leaked BBM2 works with 4.5 and 4.6 as well; there should be no reason why it would not be compatible with these OS in addition to 4.7 and 5.0.

    I've been using the leaked version already. Is there anything different about this official one?
