BBM 7 was introduced in beta earlier today with BBM Voice as an awesome new feature. In addition, BBM version 7 is sporting some new updates including a new set of emoticons. BBM'ers are big emoticon users (some have entire conversations with them) so adding more to the mix is never an issue. There are 16 new ones in all and I'm pretty excited to rock them out soon.
There are some sweet weather icons, a peace-giving hippie and my favorite, a steaming red angry face which I like to call "Angry Kevin". They don't look to be included in the current beta version, but rest assured they should be alive and well when an official release hits BlackBerry App World. If you haven't downloaded the new BBM 7 beta, go grab it if it's available in your region.
