I was waiting for some shakeup in the mobile IM space and it looks like Meebo has delivered. RIM let us know that Meebo has launched a new free BlackBerry multiple network instant messaging client. This client ties into their very popular browser based IM client and shares the same username. It supports all the regular chat networks like Google Talk, AIM, Windows Live, Yahoo, ICQ, Jabber, Myspace, and Facebook chat.
- Full chat history – Looking for a link or phone number someone sent you over IM?
Access your full Meebo chat history with any user.
- Sync with Meebo – Transition seamlessly from a conversation on your BlackBerry to your desktop and back.
Synchronized IM sessions, smart notifications, and location control.
- Multiple Models – The app works equally well with all BlackBerry models with a trackball or touchscreen. No matter what model of BlackBerry you have, the Meebo app will let you take control of your mobile IM life.
- Amazing Design – Meebo for BlackBerry sets a new standard in BlackBerry app design.
We’ve worked hard to make using Meebo on your BlackBerry intuitive and fun!
Right now there is a dearth of options but the app shows lots of promise and I hope Meebo keeps it under active development. If you have been looking for a good multi-IM client for your BlackBerry check out Meebo’s app page where you can download the beta.
