This new BlackBerry messenger application has got me drooling! The folks over at BGR have gotten their hands on an even newer build of OS 5.0 for the Curve 8900. Apparently the any devices running OS 5.0 will be able to get the update! It’s expected that many current devices including BlackBerry Bold, Curve 8900, Tour 9630, Storm 95xx, and maybe even Pearl Flip series will get access to OS 5.0 when its launched. Unfortunately we don’t really know when to expect OS 5.0 to come out… It’s been rumored to be launching near the end of Summer for most models. Until then enjoy some screen shots of the new messenger features:
We should also point out a couple of new features that OS 5.0’s BBM will offer:
- Barcode PIN Scanning: Can’t remember you BlackBerry PIN? Too lazy to go find it? Well now you can get the other person to scan an on-screen barcode with their device’s camera.
- Backup/Restore Messenger List: You can backup your BBM contact list to a Micro SD card then restore them on the device
- SMS will get threaded texts!! Yay
