It looks like while I was sleeping our tipsters have been hammering our inbox. RIM let loose with an upgrade for all the IM clients for BlackBerry to bring them to version 2.5.x which is 2.5.27 for my Bold.
Sam sent in this change log:
- Add dedicated icons to the Home Screen for one-click access to conversation boxes of specific contacts. The icon appears as the contact’s display picture or avatar.
- Add contacts and display pictures or avatars to the address book to easily instant message, email, SMS, or call right from the address book or conversation box.
- Search through saved conversations
- Add dedicated emoticon icons in the conversation box
Rumor is that these clients also work with the leaked OS 5.0 builds! Let us know what you find! Check them out at:
Thanks to everybody who sent this one in!
