BBM 5.0 launching October 7th?
The Internet is abuzz over an email that has been released stating that BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 will be released globally on October 7th! For those of you that don't use BBM, or aren't sure what changes have been made, you are in for a treat!
- Enhanced SMS - think "threaded"
- Large media file transfer
- Group Functionality
- Bar-Code Identity
- Reliable Contact Backup and Restore
For those of you running a leaked 5.0 OS, the news get's even better! Enhanced SMS requires Device Software 5.0 and later. Two arguments can be made from that statement. First, the official 5.0 OS release may be right around the corner. Second, this official Messenger release should work on all current 5.0 leaks! 48 hours has never seemed so long!
