More Juicy Info On The New BlackBerry Messenger!!

Posted on 17. Jun, 2009 by in BlackBerry


Looks like The Boy Genius has struck again.  According to a recent post on BoyGeniusReport the new version of BlackBerry messenger will be available on all devices which receive the OS 5.0 treatment.  The crew at BGR was able to get a hold of a newer version of OS 5.0 for the Curve 8900 and it included the new and improved BlackBerry messenger as well as some other great improvements. I gotta say the list is a dream come true for many. BGR has made a brief list of the best improvements:

-SMS support — You wanted threaded SMS? Well you’re finally going to be getting it!

    -PIN barcode scanning — Too lazy to add your friend to Messenger by entering in their PIN? Just have them click the Barcode option on their devices and, you guessed it, a barcode will show up letting the other party scan it with their BlackBerry camera and immediately add that contact to your list.

    -Backup/Restore Messenger list to microSD card — What else need we say?

    They did not hold anything back this time in way of screenshots.  Head on over and check them out!!
