    imclients UPDATED Links now point to both OTA and desktop site

    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!

    Is there an OS 5.0 leak for 8350i?

    Does anyone else find it ironic that despite the fact that RIM pushes the AppWorld for releasing all sorts of software they still make these available directly through the browser? Or is there a reason for this that I’m not seeing.

    Tried Yahoo! and got this:

    Sorry, your device does not meet the requirements that are needed to support Yahoo! Messenger.

    This is with Curve 8330 on Verizon.

    This is really strange. I decided to try to update via AppWorld. I went in and saw the 2.5 upgrade available but was told I was low on memory. I did a full reset and when I came back, the AppWorld was no longer showing me the upgrade! Something’s fishy here.

    I do hate vehemently what they are doing to new versions. You lose a lot of screen real state with the new two lines design and with lots of extra padding. We need more information in our tiny screens, not less. Do someone have the old versions backed up so I can downgrade?

    I love that I can give my GTalk contacts their own homescreen icon, however I then noticed I can do that same with BBM 5.0.8. Was this always the case or was I just all doped up?

    New version of gtalk isn’t on the App World yet. Took me a little while to find.
