Looks like the long awaited BlackBerry Messenger will be included as a staple in all BlackBerry devices that will receive the OS 5.0 treatment. This new version of the popular program will feature avatar support, GPS integration with proximity sensing, the ability to set and group conversations according to your liking as well as a new method to create a homescreen icon for messenger contacts. What’s more, BlackBerry Messenger will benefit from a facelift that ought to appeal to the masses more – and possibly increasing the number of BlackBerry addicts in the process. Other features include threaded SMS support, PIN barcode scanning and backup/restore of the entire Messenger list to a microSD memory card just in case disaster strikes. How does all of it sound to you?
