BlackBerry Releases Microsoft’s Windows Live Messenger

Back in May, BlackBerry announced they were working with Microsoft to develop a Windows Live Messenger for their BlackBerry platform. (
"The integration of Windows Live services into the BlackBerry platform will allow customers who use Windows Live Hotmail and Windows Live Messenger on their BlackBerry smartphone to benefit from the BlackBerry platform architecture with the ability to communicate in real-time using push technology, and offering an exceptional mobile communications experience. Customers will also be able to seamlessly access their Windows Live Hotmail and Windows Live Messenger account from their BlackBerry smartphone by simply entering their Windows Live e-mail address and password once."
Windows Live Messenger for BlackBerry allows customers to:
    • Send instant messages and join group chats
    • Set status and see the presence of friends and colleagues within Windows Live Messenger or their contact cards
    • Customize status messages
    • Save conversations
    • Showcase their Display Picture (Avatar)
    • Send and receive pictures and files
    • Use more than 60 emoticons
