If you're running a BBOS device with OS 5, 6, 7 or 7.1 - a new version of Google Talk is now available in the BlackBerry Beta Zone. This one kind of came out of nowhere but who doesn't love a good update, right?

Notable changes include UI improvements, a newly designed chat screen and Improved notifications when client is logged out by IM service.

It's been quite a while since we've seen a Google Talk update at all, so this one is definitely welcome. If you're running a legacy device you can give this one a go in the BlackBerry Beta Zone. If you do fire it up be sure to drop a comment letting us know how it is!
