Mobile Ventures has just released a new mobile IRC client, Chatmosphere, which allows you to chat in over 100,000 chat rooms around the world. While it's not a full blown IRC client, because it has to proxy the connection, it's a step in the right direction to getting a full client on the Berry. With a full two week trial, you should have plenty of time to decide if its right for you.
Here's some more details from th BlackBrryOS store:
Get access to 100.000 chatrooms from your Blackberry with Chatmosphere Chat App. Chatmosphere indexes a wide selection of global chat servers to offer you chatrooms from any country about every subject you can imagine. Now with 14-day FREE trial.
This app requires Blackberry OS5+. You can check your version of OS in settings -> about. It is the third line from the top. If you have a handset that supports OS5 but you are still running OS4, have a go at upgrading your phone with desktop manager.
