    BlackBerry-messenger-app-world Todd just let me know that he spotted BlackBerry Messenger in the BlackBerry App World at this link below:

    Link in App World Web Store or http://www.blackberry.com/messenger

    UPDATE 2: Looks like it is available outside of the App World at:

    http://www.blackberry.com/messenger

    Update 1: Just got the feature list from RIM

    • Avatars can be easily set up and then populated from BlackBerry Contacts
    • Group Functionality – allows groups of friends, family and personal contacts to stay connected & share experiences instantly on their BlackBerry smartphones:

      • ongoing group chat
      • sharing pictures
      • organizing tasks and events with shared lists and calendars

    • Bar-code identity – easily add/invite contacts to BlackBerry Messenger by displaying a 2-dimensional bar code that the invitees can capture with their BlackBerry camera
    • Large Media File Transfer – up to 6MB

    The download is a whopping 2.8 megabytes but it looks like it is worth it. I am still waiting for my device to reboot and heading to the bar but let us know what you find in the comments! I wonder how long it will take this one to take top place in the App World charts.

    PS. App World says it supports all devices in all countries. Not sure how that works…

    Finally the official release. It has some changes from 5.0.0.8 beta that was floating around.

    Recommend the update to everyone, especially if you weren’t already running the beta 5.0.0.8.

    Well worth your time and effort!!

    I’m a new BB user and I have no experience with the world of PINs etc. Help me understand the social dynamics of this…

    Let’s use my kid as an example. He has a bunch of friends; some of them are BB users, most are not. I’d think that the way to get people hooked into the BB would be that BBM would let all of these kids talk to each other, just that those on the BB would get extra benefits, like no limit in the messages, faster interactio, etc. But, IIUC, it seems that BBM forces all the kids in the exchange to be BB users.

    Do I get this right? If so, this does not seem a good viral way for RIM to get people to use BBs.

    yes and is partly because each blackberry has it’s own unique pin, there are other workarounds for windows mobile but is a bit more complicated. the blackberry does support all major chat or im clients too.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I think I understand the technical aspects. It is the social part I don’t understand.

    In the original world of corporate use of BB, I can see how it would be OK to make BBM be only for BB users. But consumers are spread across providers. If RIM wants a viral adoption of BBs it needs to assume that diversity and it needs to make the benefits of BBs be evident to those not using them.

    I think that would work in arrangement that benefits the BBM participant that is on the BB w/o excuding the lesser participant that is on, say the iPhone

    Installed it 2 hours ago on my Bold with OS 5.0.0.238. Working great. Excellent upgraded version.

    The only thing after downloading, is that the main screen of contacts does not show their status (which it used to under the old .08 leak) Anyone else notice this or have this issue. Ive re-installed it a couple of times with the same issue so I assume it to be the way it is….
