BlackBerry Messenger 5.0 kommt schon am 7. Oktober

Richtig gelesen, der neue BlackBerry Messenger wird schon in 2 Tagen verfügbar sein. Eine Nachricht die überraschender kam, als man sie erwartet hatte. Doch nicht anders sind wir es von Kevin / Crackberry gewohnt. Doch was noch auffällt, die Version wird nun doch die 5.0 sein und nicht wie es alle vermutet haben (2.5).

Hier der Originaltext den Kevin per Mail erhalten hat:
