    Sounds good, how reliable is the source though? Using my grade 10 french skills, I'm Canadian eh! lol it was required to take it until grade 9 and then stupid me took it for another year lol, it looks like it will be released in USA (hoping its North America) today??? Anyone with better French to English skills can verify this lol

    With the arrival of BlackBerry 10, we learn some interesting information but not least! Instant Messaging Research In Motion will land in its latest version 7. BlackBerry Messenger is the killer application for smartphones in Canada. It allows you to instantly communicate with friends, family and other BlackBerry users whose messages pass through secure servers from Waterloo. This new BBM 7 should come to the USA and in France at the date of 30 November 2012. Completely in about 15 days, you can enjoy the latest BlackBerry Messenger 7, such as:

    Strange it hasnt been posted up in Blackberry Beta Zone?

    I would prefer true VOIP and not PTT (Push to Talk), all the other messengers on iOS and Android can do it...apparently Viber is working on it on BlackBerry OS. Either way, I'm glad to see VOIP like communication come to BBM, wish it was here a long time ago when I still had contacts on my list.

    I hope it's not only push-to-talk. Doesn't that effectively exist already, with the ability to send voice clips?

    whats the point with all these updates with barely any contacts, BBM should be released to every platform.

    I still have plenty so I see the point and am looking forward to it. Also, don't forget that in some nations, BlackBerry is King and BBM is a standard means of communication amongst many. As for every platform.... that's a discussion for another thread that's already out there. I for one disagree with your thought process.

    it's on beta zone albeit i didn't find the download yet.
    i believe it should be a voip type.
    not 'talkie-walkie' style. we already have voice note on bbm which i have been using when i'm too lazy to type.
    besides there's an app for ptt style.
    look up for BeepUs app. fun app to use but must be in a good reception area or wifi.

    but i strongly believe that rim should have this function many months or years ago instead of third party apps.

    Breaking: RIM introduces BBM to BBM voice calls | TechSuplex
    BlackBerry have introduced the ability to make voice calls between BBM contacts. The Service which is called BBM voice lets you make voice calls over wifi to BBM contacts by simply tapping the call button while in a chat and you’ll start a voice call. BBM Voice will add some great depth to BBM, providing you the ability to escalate a chat to a voice call when the situation calls for it. This feature should be huge in emerging markets or for anyone calling long distance as there will be no long-distance charges.

    Seems to be a bit slow making its way to the UK. Keep refreshing but nothing yet for me either.

    Sucks that it won't work on your phones data plan. Being restricted to WiFi only is lame, and probably RIM sucking up to the carriers yet again.
