SHAPE Services has just released an update for their popular instant messaging service IM+, bringing it up to v9.2. This is a pretty cool update, as they have now added in support for native BlackBerry OS Push service and inbox integration.
Other changes include:
Mail.Ru Agent instant messaging service
Translator+ service is no longer supported
While IM+ isn't a cheap application, it really packs a lot into just one app, making it worth the $19.99 price tag if you use a lot of instant messaging apps. You can chat using MSN, Facebook, Skype, Yahoo!, Google Talk, AIM, Jabber, ICQ, VKontakte, Yandex Chat, MySpace and use Twitter all from within the app - meaning you no longer need to take up a bunch of room on your device with individual apps for each one. There is a free version of IM+ available (ad supported) as well.
A new joint announcement from BlackBerry, OnwardMobility, and FIH Mobile lays out the plans for a new 5G BlackBerry Android smartphone with a physical keyboard to be brought to market in North America, and Europe within the first half of 2021.
