AIM, MSN for Blackberry

Blackberry 8700rI’m not sure how many readers have Blackberrys, but if you’ve been frustrated with only having Google Talk and Yahoo! Instant Messenger unless you wanted to fork out the cash for WebMessenger or Verichat (now discontinued), you’ll be happy to know that Blackberry-native AIM, MSN, and ICQ are apparently on their way.

Verichat apparently got out of the Blackberry IM business just in time. I’d hate to be in WebMessenger’s shoes right now. I suppose they’ve still got Windows Mobile users. Public IM always struck me as a particularly fragile sort of thing to sell software for, though, especially when it’s such an obvious value add for the carriers.
