    Blackberry Messenger is getting a new look

    This was posted over at BGR but just in case some of you don't visit over there I thought I would share it with you. Well it seems Blackberry is updating the Blackberry Instant Messaging app, and from what little BGR has learned it sounds like it will be awesome. I am very excited to read about this, BBM is my most used app on my phone.

    Here are a few of the new features:

    * Homescreen support — you can pin/sticky actual Messenger contacts directly to the homescreen for easy access!
    * Avatar support — set your own avatar using the Camera or saved photo on your device (this is displayed locally as well as shown next to your Messenger name on your friend’s buddy list)
    * GPS location integration — you can now set permissions so friends can always see your location, have to request it each time, or never can see it
    * Proximity sensor — we’re guessing this will let you know if you’re within a certain distance of friends (pending, of course, you’re both set to share locations freely with each other)
    * Set conversation subjects — this will allow you to organize your convos on the main Messenger screen and label them with subjects to keep track of all your conversations


    And here are a few pics of it in action, enjoy!

    Nope no date that I can find. I assume it won't be until Storm 2 or the 5.0 release which ever comes first.
