RIM releases BBM 6, makes your mobile messaging dreams come true
It's been quite awhile since RIM's mobile chat service got a facelift, but back in April we got a sneak peek of the next BBM build. Since then, millions upon millions have waited with bated breath for its release, and now they must wait no more: BBM 6 has finally been unleashed upon the world. This new bit of code brings support for BBM-connected applications -- so you can chat within apps and both view and download your friends' favorite apps from lists on their BBM profiles. The new functionality means programs for real-time project collaboration are possible, as are new types of social gameplay. Nifty features, all, but are they enough to reverse RIM's less-than-rosy recent fortunes?
