ICQ gets the boot from BlackBerry Smartphones

December 1, 2010 | By | 1 Comment

I often wondered why RIM even continued to support ICQ, an instant messaging from back in the mid-1990s, that not many use anymore. Well RIM has officially posted an article on their knowledge base stating that they will no longer be supporting ICQ and as of December 4, 2010 BlackBerry users will no longer be able to download it. RIM’s solution for this is very simple… Either use an alternative IM platform (like Google Talk, Windows Live, Yahoo!, etc) or use a third-party app like BeeJive, that still supports ICQ. You can check out the article here if you would like.

So what are your thoughts? Will you miss ICQ for BlackBerry?
