BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 Getting Released Globally On October 7th

This one definitely caught me by surprise. According to a tip sent to krackBerry Kevin the new BlackBerry Messenger will be released globally on October 7th, less than two days away!”

BlackBerry® Messenger 5.0

Launch Date: Global – October 7, 2009

BlackBerry® Messenger is an instant messaging application that allows BlackBerry Smartphone users to send and receive instant messages with other BlackBerry Smartphone users.

BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 is the latest release.

Enhanced SMS -Allows for a conversational chat-like user experience with a single contact list for the most personal mobile-to-mobile communications

Note: BlackBerry® Device Software 5.0 and later is required for the SMS functionality.

Avatars – Users can choose a picture from the BlackBerry Smartphone gallery and save it as their personal avatar, which will be seen by their contacts. They can also view other avatars in the contact list and zoom in on the avatars of contacts participating in a conversation by selecting “View participants.” Large Media File Transfer – Users can send/receive large file transfers up to 6 megabytes for pictures, files and audio.

Note: BlackBerry Device Software 5.0 is required to receive large media files.

Enhanced Group Functionality
– Allows for the ability to update, share communicate with a subset community.

Bar-code Identity – A user can add a contact to the BlackBerry Messenger contact list by displaying a 2 – dimensional bar code that invitees can capture with their device cameras.
Reliable Contact Backup and Restore
– Contacts are backed-up on a server and do not require the need for BlackBerry® Desktop Manager.”

Many of us have been using the leaked version of BBM 5.0 but it’s not perfect and is most likely an early release compared to what is internally available today. According to the leaked tip the “Enhanced SMS” feature of BBM 5.0 is only available to BlackBerry users who are running OS 5.0 or later. I wonder if this means an OS 5.0 launch is also around the corner? That would definitely be a nice surprise!
