If you’ve ever owned a BlackBerry smartphone, you know how BlackBerry Messenger is. You might even call it one of the biggest selling points for the BlackBerry smartphone line. BlackBerry Messenger has become such a breakout star at this point that BlackBerry developer Research in Motion (RIM) will soon be optioning the function out to other platforms like Google Android and Apple iOS. But don’t worry, BlackBerry loyalists – RIM hasn’t forsaken you. The blogosphere is a-buzz today with new BlackBerry rumors surrounding screencaps of what could be the new BlackBerry Messenger 6.
BlackBerry-centric news siteCrackBerrywas the first to find the leaked pictures, along with a leaked version of BlackBerry Messenger 6 itself, and leak the story to the internet at large. What does the new BlackBerry Messenger 6 have to offer? So far, we know BlackBerry users can look forward to a BlackBerry Messenger 6 defined by its sleek interface and bright colored icons. BBM 6.0 also apparently enables users to color-code contacts and chats for easier communication.
In short, from what we know so far, BBM 6.0 features simple changes that are nonetheless clever. RIM BlackBerry is a company that has revolutionized speedy and efficient smartphone communication time and time again. In the wake of troublingrecent newsthat the BlackBerry PlayBook could ship without crucial communication tools like BlackBerry Messenger or Contacts, hearing that BlackBerry has returned to improving what it does best for the device it should value most is extremely heartening.
BlackBerry Messenger 6 will most likely be released to the public at the same time as BlackBerry OS 6.1. (If you’re feeling extra eager to upgrade your own BlackBerry smartphone, resist the urge – “trust us on that one,” said CrackBerry in an ominous warning against attempting to install the BlackBerry OS 6.1 leak.) The pictures are already tasty, but we can’t wait to see the new BlackBerry Messenger 6 in action.
